With each change noted comes the reason for the change and the rationale behind the change so you can understand why these changes take place and what affects them. Unlike other guides that are made to us with code books this one is unique. The purpose of this guide book is to help you understand and implement the most meaningful and useful of the codes standards and provisions found in the A117.1 standard. So instead of wasting your time with code changes that don’t matter or codes that aren’t used all too often, this guide book helps you get down to the important and critical codes that you need to understand. With each code section comes a photograph or a real world example that helps you visualize the code. There are even some codes that come with illustrations. Following the picture there is a summary and analysis of the code to help you grasp the concept fully and prepare you to comply with what the code has outlined.
