RE: can you say...IBC, SBC, EIEIO...

I hate to be the one bearing bad news, but my understanding is that Pasadena, Texas adopted the NFPA 5000 building code some time ago.  There are only two cities that have made that mistake.  The other one is Phoenix, Arizona.  It is expected that Phoenix will switch to IBC in the next two years.  According to my sources, so will the State of California.  That will leave Pasadena, Texas as the sole user of NFPA.  At least you won't have to worry about the cost of future updates!

Here in the greater Houston area, we've got the IBC 2000, soon the IBC 2003 (Houston), SBC and NBC (Pasadena, TX).

We did have the UBC as well, until Houston went to IBC.

You watch. No sooner will SBC and NBC "go away" than someone will adopt that National Fire Code thingy.
