Build it right. Build it to code.
Building codes are a set of rules that specify the minimum acceptable level of safety for buildings and other structures. The main purpose of building codes is to ensure the protection of public health, safety and general welfare as they relate to the construction and occupancy of buildings and structures.
Building codes cover everything from the most basic structures through the largest buildings on the planet. Building code becomes law in a particular jurisdiction when it is formally enacted by the appropriate local authority. Specific building codes apply to each area of construction, such as building, electrical, plumbing, concrete, etc.
