Codes are Fun! Sept. 22 2005
By K. Williams - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Could studying building codes actually be fun? Much to my surprise, when you combine this book with the companion study guide workbook it is. The author presents the information on the codes clearly and in logical order. I am studying for my NCIDQ exam and was really nervous about the "codes questions" until I got this book.

Excellent reference guide for IBC code March 16 2007
By M. Williams - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I am a registered architect, and purchased this book for the purpose of studying for the NCIDQ interior design licensing exam. I had no idea how clearly, simply, and comprehensively it would cover the IBC code (and some others). I'm sure it will be an asset for my NCIDQ preparation, but even more so, I have been able to reference it for my architecture practice.

The Codes Guidebook for Interiors- professional peer review Sept. 22 2005
By Anne J. Shaughnessy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I own each of the 3 editions of this book, and have found the information to be a well source of sound, practical advise concerning the application of codes as they relate to interior projects. I am an Interior Designer and I refer to my copy of Codes Guidebook for Interiors regularly for projects I am involved in. This book and the companion study guide are part of the recommended resources for studying and preparing for the NCIDQ examination. I believe this book should be a part of every commercial practitioners library, whether they be an architect or interior designer.

Good, could be better. March 7 2009
By ogden - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book describes codes in a very easy to understand conversational manner.

It could be better in two ways:

1)Include ADAAG/ANSI 117.1. ANSI 117 is a building code and most jurisdictions follow it, so omitting it from the book is a major oversight.

2)While The Codes Guidebook for Interiors does a good job of bringing together disparate code requirements into a single paragraph summary, it still needs to tell a designer WHERE in the codebook to find the actual language. If I design a door the way the Codes Guidebook says, I cannot tell the inspector,"Well that's the way the Codes Guidebook says to do it"--I have to show him the actual code sections that support my design. Since the Codes Guidebook doesn't tell me which sections to go to, I end up doing just as much work, if not more, because I have to pour over the model code to find how the book arrived at the summarized solution. Specific sources need to be cited frequently.
