Editorial Reviews

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.

This book makes an excellent Companion for the 1997 UBC Code. It is broken into section like the UBC code, each section has check list that can be used to insure compliance with the code.
The CD Rom in the back of the book allows you to print out check list that can be used in project files for documentation. An excelent tool for any design Engineer.

This book is a big check-list. Do not buy it if you are actually looking for building code information. However, it would probably be useful to contractors who want to be sure they have covered all bases. (I gave it two stars because it was not useful for me.)

Page xiv states, "A copy of the Uniform Building Code is required to use this book," and that is the truth. I wish that information had been available in the reviews before I bought it. This book does not summarize the code requirements.

Every guy who does a DIY job of any sort could use this book. I have already interfaced with Building Inspectors in the past, but I didn't have this book. If used properly this book could save a lot of headaches for everyone by listing a list for a job that the inspectors go by and if Joe Public used it he could see exactly what the inspector is going to look for and make changes as needed before the inspector arrives. The only thing that I could say is get the book and save yourself all the aggravation dealing with the inspector.
