Easily navigate and cross-reference Building Codes

Trying to find the regulation I need in the Florida Building Code is something close to a nightmare. Even when you find what you are looking for you often have to look in twelve more sections to get all of the relevant information. GoFetchCode helps me find exactly what I am looking for and then makes it super easy to navigate the code to find all the pieces I need to make sure that my designs are in compliance.
