Overview

This is the essential resource for anyone seeking an in-depth knowledge of the many fire- and life-safety provisions of the 2009 International Building Code (IBC). Whether you're a student or a building official, an architect or a fire marshal, a plans examiner or an inspector, anyone who uses the IBC will benefit from this guide. Using the many practical examples and the trademark commentary style that made the previous edition so popular, the handbook clearly and deliberately explains the intent, purpose, and application of important Code provisions. Coverage includes the nonstructural provisions in Chapters 1-15 and 24-34 of the 2009 IBC, addressing in detail areas such as means of egress, occupancy classification, building height and area, fire protection systems, fire and smoke protectives, mixed occupancies and types of construction requirements. The book also traces the historical background and rationale of code provisions to provide a well-rounded overview, making this one tool that no office should be without.
