From the Back Cover
Make code compliance a cinch with detailed, project-oriented checklists. Failure to design to code can cost you: in expensive change orders during construction, costly delays, the loss of client trust and respect, and even litigation. Avoid these time- and money-consuming changes with this invaluable book/CD package. It "decodes" the often unwieldy requirements of the Uniform Building Code into practical checklists that you can use to ensure quality control...and makes compliance easy! No matter what stage your project is in or what type of structure you're working on, this checklist-packed resource reduces verification of code compliance to the simple act of running through a checklist.
The book reformats the Uniform Building Code into four distinct job stages, each with its own checklists: design; architectural documentation; structural documentation; specifications. Provided in both print and electronic CD-ROM format, this comprehensive collection of clear, complete code compliance checklists simplifies your record-keeping as well as allaying your compliance concerns. You'll also find a Code Information Form for initial documentation of code requirements--plus a Deficiency Worksheet for recording noncompliance items found during code review with the checklists.
In office, studio, and on-site quality control, the Uniform Building Code Compliance Manual is your key to quick and complete verification.
