Summary

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 Disabilities standards. The book uses an easy-to-navigate format that 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. Dozens of examples and a greatly enhanced set of illustrations, show how codes apply to real-world projects.
