Establishes minimum regulations for mechanical systems using prescriptive and performance-related provisions. The IMC was developed with broad-based principles that make possible the use of new materials, methods and design.
The 2021 edition of the Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC®) represents the most current approaches in the mechanical field. It is the seventh edition developed under the ANSI Consensus process is designated as an American National Standards by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
The 2021 edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC®) represents the most current approaches in the plumbing field. It is the seventh edition developed under the ANSI Consensus process is designated as an American National Standards by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
The PMBOK® Guide–Sixth Edition – PMI’s flagship publication has been updated to reflect the latest good practices in project management. New to the Sixth Edition, each knowledge area will contain a section entitled Approaches for Agile, Iterative and Adaptive Environments, describing how these practices integrate in project settings.
The “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete” (“Code”) provides minimum requirements for the materials, design, and detailing of structural concrete buildings and, where applicable, nonbuilding structures. This Code addresses structural systems, members, and connections, including cast-in-place, precast, plain, nonprestressed, prestressed, and composite construction.
The Building Code Requirements for Masonry Structures (TMS 402-08/ACI 530-08/ASCE 5-08) covers the design and construction of masonry structures. It is written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a legally adopted building code.
The Code covers the design and construction of masonry structures, with subjects covered ranging from quality assurance to the details and development of reinforcement. Compliance with the Specification is required by the Code to control materials, labor and construction.
IA Document A201–2017, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, is considered the keystone document of the Conventional family of documents because it provides the terms and conditions under which the Owner, Contractor, and Architect will work together during the building construction process.
AIA Document A401®–2017 establishes the contractual relationship between the contractor and subcontractor. It sets forth the responsibilities of both parties and lists their respective obligations, which are written to parallel AIA Document A201®–2017, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, which A401–2017 incorporates by reference.
AIA Document A701TM-2018 is used when competitive bids are to be solicited for construction of the project. Coordinated with AIA Document A201®, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction, and its related documents, AIA Document A701-2018 provides instructions on procedures, including bonding requirements, for Bidders to follow when preparing and submitting their bids.
This text is a complete, practical guide to servicing and repairing heating, cooling, and refrigeration equipment. It provides the information needed to make a quick diagnosis and repair. This guide first examines the conditions for ideal equipment operation, then proceeds to common and not-so-common malfunctions. This handbook, with its easy-to-follow, step-by-step guidelines, is a must for modern technicians.
Standard 90.1 has been a benchmark for commercial building energy codes in the United States and a key basis for codes and standards around the world for more than 35 years. This standard provides the minimum requirements for energy-efficient design of most buildings, except low-rise residential buildings.
Backflow Prevention: Theory and Practice is a comprehensive education in the fundamentals of backflow that serves as both textbook and reference manual for working with potable and non-potable water supply systems. Chapters include coverage of the essentials of backflow and an exploration of the associated hazards, federal and state laws, prevention, troubleshooting, and more. Through detailed explanation, Backflow Prevention equips students with the information and instruction necessary to maintain existing systems and to create their own cross-connection control programs.
