JUST RELEASED -- SEISMIC CONSTRUCTION HANDBOOK

Codes can only cover the most common construction installation and, by their nature, give only sparse details about how to implement their requirements.  The CISCA Seismic Construction Handbook is intended to cover other commonly encountered installations.  It not only covers these situations, but gives detailed advice, tips, and illustrations to help both contractors and inspectors ensure that ceilings installed in seismic areas are installed correctly and economically.

Production Guide
The CISCA Production Guide is a practical reference for labor cost data but is not, in itself, presented as a textbook in estimating. Further, it is not the purpose of CISCA in publishing this guide to standardize the units used by acoustical contracting firms throughout the industry, but rather to promulgate a method of labor cost estimating based on a “component” theory that has worked well in other segments of construction.

If used properly, the CISCA Production Guide produces estimates of far greater accuracy.
