This comprehensive code for homebuilding combines building, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas, energy, and electrical provisions into a single resource. The 2009 International Residential Code? For One- and Two- Family Dwellings uses these provisions to provide detailed insight into the construction of one- and two-family dwellings and townhouses up to three stories high. Using foundational principles that facilitate the use of new materials and building designs to guide the content, this reference guide also establishes minimum regulations using prescriptive provisions.
International Code Council 's publishing partnership with Delmar has made available to all involved in building design, construction, code analysis and application the highest quality technical code support publications by expert authors and educators. The Delmar and Code Council co-publishing and distribution partnership extends the reach of our joint efforts into hands of those who need the best information on time. -Hamid Naderi, P.E., CBO, Vice President - Product Development, International Code Council, Inc.
