Gibbons, who has served more than 20 years on the Accessibility Code Advisory Committee of the California Building Standards Commission (even five years as Chairman), this book will help you comprehend all of the newest changes that the 2017 edition has brought to the table.  With more than 250 incredible illustrations, you will not find a better manual to lay out the changes included in this new edition.  Some of the text is presented a checklist format which is perfect for inspection, design, or surveys and is simple to understand and apply.  References to other manuals are made easy with applicable CBC and ADA/ADAS section numbers to make sure you are using this book to its full potential.  There are even flowcharts that break down the most complicated procedures and certain California statutes in regard to disabled accessibility compliance. 

 

In short, anyone who works in the accessibility field and refers to the CBC or ADA/ADAS needs to add this manual to their collection.  This is a book you won’t want to leave in the office as it will be a crucial guide in the workplace.  This essential manual is even published in spiral bound form to make it easy to bring with you where ever your work calls you whether you stay in the office or need to make a call somewhere else.
