FWIW, this is typically the case with most all legally-adopted building codes. The adopting jurisdiction will take a "model" building code like UBC or BOCA, and add it's own sections (they aren't really amendments, since the model building code upon which the legally-adopted code is based doesn't really have any legal standing), adapting the code to fit the jurisdiction's requirements as it sees fit. The City of Houston, Texas Building Code, for example, is (currently) UBC 1994 with some added information mostly pertaining to architecture. The structural portion of the code is identical to the UBC "model" code, such that UBC 1994 has been adopted verbatim for structural engineering. The introductory chapter of ACI 318 has some good explanatory information about this procedure for your consideration. -----Original Message----- From: Tom Liberty [mailto:picpc(--nospam--at)2xtreme.net] Sent: Monday, December 27, 1999 12:43 PM To: seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org Subject: Re: a California code question The California Building Code is a result of amendments the various California State Agencies modify to the Uniform Building Code.
