Reference publisher Delmar and the International Code Council have released Dwelling Construction Under the 2007 California Building Code. Updated specifically for California residential buildings, this product provides information specific to designers, code officials and contractors needing to use the 2007 California Building Code based on the International Building Code.
The new resource examines the design and construction of detached one- and two-family dwellings. It contains full-color illustrations, tables, figures and clear organization to make the content easy to use and apply in real-world scenarios. This guide presents the 2007 California Building Code in one simple publication.
The book was written by the International Code Council's industry experts. The Council, a membership association dedicated to building safety and fire prevention, develops the codes used to construct residential and commercial buildings, including homes and schools. Most U.S. cities, counties and states choose the International Codes, building safety codes developed by the International Code Council.
“This is a great resource for dealing with detached one- and two-family dwellings under the 2007 California Building Code," said Council Senior Staff Architect Jay Woodward. “The illustrations, the format and the fact it includes the requirements of Chapter 7A dealing with exterior wildfire exposure make it a great tool for homebuilders, design professionals and code officials.”
