This highly practical resource explores the very latest construction techniques, materials, processes, and green practices that will reduce the environmental impact of the building itself.

Going Green with the International Residential Code  (ISBN-10: 1435497295 | ISBN-13: 9781435497290)

Finally, a resource that bridges the gap between the worlds of green building and residential building codes – Going Green with the International Residential Code. The first book of its kind on the market, this indispensable "code-consultant" takes green building concepts one step further and addresses them as they specifically relate to building codes, and in particular, how they relate to the International Residential Code® (IRC). Because the code books themselves do not directly address green construction issues, this book will help the reader make green decisions about construction methods and materials while staying code compliant. Coverage begins with a Building Code Primer that explores basic permitting and regulatory processes. This fundamental knowledge sets the stage for readers to be better able to successfully incorporate green principles into construction projects and avoid costly mistakes that can occur when key processes are not established and followed beforehand. The book then moves to a review of the IRC®, chapter-by-chapter, identifying areas where provisions of the code will affect a green construction project and where in a project there are green options, as well. Using tried-and-true real-life examples of green construction techniques throughout, this is the perfect guide to understanding building codes in today's quest to go green.
