Popular Guides, Seminars Focus on Significant Changes to 2009 I-Codes
Significant changes to the 2009 International Codes, a series of books that are an invaluable tool to help code officials, architects, engineers and other code users transition to the new codes, are available from the International Code Council. The books are the first support documents published for the 2009 I-Codes and are complemented by a series of seminars.
Each book offers a comprehensive, practical analysis of critical changes between the 2006 and 2009 editions of the I-Codes. The International Building, Residential and Fire codes are discussed in separate books. A fourth book addresses changes to the 2009 International Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas codes
Changes are identified and then followed by in-depth discussion of how real-world application is affected. The books discuss provisions with special significance, including new and innovative design ideas and technologies, modern materials and methods of construction, and current approaches to safety and stability.
Authored by Code Council technical experts, the books include detailed color illustrations, and are jointly published with Cengage. To purchase the books and register for the seminars visit www.iccsafe.org/09changes. Seminar registration includes the related book.
