I can't speak for water or telecommunication towers but for metal buildings, they are routinely designed for the specified code of the area (UBC, SBC, BOCA/NBC, IBC, ASCE7, NC, NY, Wisconsin, NBCC, etc...). Typically they would be designed for the MBMA code when no other local code is specified or required, then the MBMA would be used as a minimum design criteria.
For some buildings, they are designed for both codes (local and MBMA) by using the more stringent criteria of the two (or more) codes for specific areas. Metal buildings are held to the same standard of building codes as any conventional building. Most reputible metal building companies do follow similar criteria.
