WASHINGTON—Answers to the most frequently asked residential construction jobsite code questions can now be found in a guide published by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the International Code Council (ICC). The 2012 Home Builders’ Jobsite Codes: A Quick Guide to the 2012 International Residential Code provides easy access to code requirements for every aspect of residential construction. The guide also includes a reference guide, glossary and more than 100 illustrations, tables and figures to further explain specific code requirements.
The 2012 Home Builder’s Jobsite Code details new fire safety and hurricane protections measure, as well as the impact of code changes in 2012 to ventilation requirements, wall construction and duct sealing as a few examples. The guide book is meant for practical use on a jobsite and is not intended as a substitute for the complete codes.
The guide was written by Stephen A. Van Note and is available in both print and e-book through BuilderBooks, NAHB’s publishing arm. To purchase the guide or more information can be found here.
