Code Check Commercial: An Illustrated Guide to Commercial Building Codes (Spiral)
Code Check Commercial is a field guide for code issues commonly encountered in the construction of retail stores, offices, warehouses, health services' locations, schools, service stations, hotels, restaurants, apartments, and condos. Using clear language and informative diagrams, Code Check Commercial is based on the 2009 International and Uniform Codes and the 2009 National Electrical Code. The spiral-bound Code Check series emphasizes the central safety principles that underlie building codes. With durable laminated pages, it is designed to be used on-site for quick reference.

Coauthor Douglas Hansen is a general contractor and certified combination inspector with over 30 years of field experience. Both authors present seminars and classes nationwide on a wide variety of building topics. Paddy Morrissey, former senior illustrator of CornerHardware.com, has been the sole illustrator for the "Code Check" series since its inception.
