The Detail Packages generally surpass most building codes and by-laws in regards to rain-screen cladding and exceeding minimum effective r-value requirements.  However, the information, drawings and details obtained from Akira Living are not intended to replace professional advice.  When Akira Living construction drawing details and specifications are incorporated into buildings, it must be reviewed by knowledgeable building envelope professionals and/or architects and reflect the specific unique conditions and design parameters of each building.  Use of Akira Living does not relieve designers or builders of their responsibility to comply with local building codes, standards and by-laws with respect to the design and construction of the building enclosure.  Akira Living products and services do not include sealed engineer drawings, or sealed schedules that may be required by the municipality.

Readers and clients are advised to evaluate the information, materials and techniques cautiously for themselves and to consult appropriate professional resources to determine whether information, materials and techniques are suitable in their case.  All Akira Living Detail Packages are diagramatic and are not intended for direct use.  A Professional Engineer must evaluate and customize per specific job requirements.
