Introduction

Up to Code Inspectors Guides comprise a series of manuals covering different CSI construction procedures and standards for commercial and industrial projects. Although based on the IBC 2003 and IRC 2003 codes, these guides are not intended to replace these codes or any of the other model codes and/or specifications in the contract documents. The goal is for the Inspector and/or project site managers to use these guides as a basis for establishing his or her inspection guidelines, and for providing the client with a well-built project meeting the specifications. The convenient sizing of these guides allows the Inspector to carry them around in a pocket, making code and standards information readily accessible. Furthermore, our intent is for this reference tool to be instrumental in the construction of better buildings and to be a valuable training guide for those just entering the construction field. These guides are valuable tools for architects, engineers, project managers, tradespeople, and contractors, as well as inspectors.
