From the Publisher. The only guide devoted exclusively to codes applicable to interiors, The Codes Guidebook for Interiors, Fifth Edition features jargon-free explanations of all the codes and standards of concern to designers and architects, including performance codes, fire codes, building and finish standards, energy codes, and Americans with disability standards. The easy-to-navigate format is geared towards the code process as a whole, to take readers step-by-step through the codes relevant at each stage in the design process. This makes it easy to quickly find information on everything from occupancy classifications and fire protection systems to plumbing requirements and finish/furniture selection. Dozens of examples and a greatly enhanced set of illustrations, including floor plans, show clearly how codes apply to real-world projects.

This single reference is the essential source for those planning a new building or making changes to an existing space, saving readers hours of research time -- and dramatically reducing the potential for costly planning oversights.
