An easy-to-use guide to building codes for healthcare facilitiesThe construction industry is evolving a single set of international building codes. Now, more than ever, architects need an interpretive guide to understand how the building code affects the early design of specific projects. One in a series of focused guides to building codes from Wiley, this book familiarizes code users with the 2006 International Building Code (IBC) as it applies to healthcare facilities.Early understanding and incorporation of code-compliant design provisions in a project is essential. This book provides healthcare design professionals-architects, engineers, and other related design professionals-with an understanding of how the International Building Code was developed, and how it is likely to be interpreted when applied to the design and construction of healthcare facilities.Building Codes Illustrated for Healthcare Facilities features:? A user-friendly visual format that makes finding the information you need quick and easy? Nearly 900 illustrations, by architectural illustrator Steven Juroszek in the style of noted illustrator and author Frank Ching, that help visualize and explain the codes? Text written by experienced experts who have been instrumental in gaining acceptance for the new unified building code? A guide to navigating the new code plus complete coverage of all key aspects of the IBCThe newly adopted International Building Code is similar but by no means identical to the three model codes that most practitioners have used in the past. Building Codes Illustrated for Healthcare Facilities is an essential companion to the IBC for emerging practitioners seeking to master the full scope of accepted knowledge in the field, and for experienced practitioners needing to understand the similarities and differences between the familiar model codes and the new IBC.

Francis D.K. Ching graduated cum laude with a five-year professional degree from the University of Notre Dame in 1966. His accomplishments included instructing at Ohio University and Cornish College of the Arts, teaching as an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and lecturing at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He was a visiting scholar at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. He has been a professor of architecture at the University of Washington since 1992. Ching's published works including Architecture: Form, Space, & Order, A Visual Dictionary of Architecture, and Interior Design Illustrated, focus on clarifying and communicating architectural element, principles, and relationships. Ching earned a Citation for Excellence in International Book Publishing in 1992, and two years later he was honored with the Graham Foundation Grant to develop a two-volume reader for Design Drawing.
