Commercial Drafting and Detailing offers readers clear explanations and professional, step-by-step examples for producing each of the architectural and structural drawings required in a complete set of commercial plans - from site, floor, stairs, and roof plans, to framing and foundation plans, and more! As they progress through the book, readers are challenged to develop critical thinking skills in order to solve design problems consistent with the 2000 International Building Code (IBC) as well as current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) specifications. Comprehensive in scope, each chapter concludes with engineering sketches to aid in completing standard construction details related to specific building materials, such as: lumber, timber, steel, masonry, poured concrete, and fire-resistive materials. Thoroughly revised and updated, this edition is particularly well suited for use independently or as a companion text to our best-selling Architectural Drafting & Design book (also by Alan Jefferis).
