If you're doing renovations that will affect the plumbing in a new or existing non-residential structure, you should refer to the Uniform Plumbing Code as your guide to requirements the department of building and safety will uphold you to in order to approve the construction you're doing. This comprehensive plumbing code reference comes out every three years and is available in a loose-leaf binder version as well as on CD Rom. The most recent version is the 2006 Uniform Plumbing Code. As the building industry standard for plumbing related construction, contractors, architects, and mechanical and plumbing engineers refer to this plumbing code reference for much of their work.
