Updated coverage contains the most recent ICC codes, including the International Building Code and new material on the ICC International Green Construction Code, as well as the NFPA's most recent Life code. The authors address a wide-variety of building and project types (large and small) and they offer information on single family homes and historical and existing buildings. The seventh edition includes:

  • Easy-to-navigate format geared toward the code process as a whole
  • A step-by-step guide through the codes relevant at each stage in the design process
  • The newest changes to the ADA Standards and ICC/ASI accessibility requirements
  • A companion site that offers interactive checklists, flashcards, PowerPoint lecture slides, and an Instructor's Manual

Having all applicable codes in a single resource saves hours of research time, and can dramatically reduce the potential for costly planning oversights. Whether renovation or new construction, small or large, codes apply to every project. The Codes Guidebook for Interiors provides designers with the comprehensive information they need to stay up-to-date.
