It is an essential tool to preserve public health and safety that provides safeguards from hazards associated with the built environment. It addresses design and installation of innovative materials that meet or exceed public health and safety goals.

Print copies of the following IBC Manuals are located in the Reference Collection on the 3rd Floor of the LSC-North Harris Library and are In Library Use Only.

Many of the codes are available on the IBC website: You are able to read the codes for free, but can not copy or print from the website.
