RE: Applicable Building Codes in Texas

As you might have read in many posts over the past few years, there is no building code covering the unincorporated areas of Texas.  Unless your facility is located within a municipality, there is no building code and there never has been one.  If your facility is located within a municipality, then you should call (on the telephone) the building official in that municipality and document whatever he/she tells you.  Today, most cities in Texas have adopted IBC.  Some still use UBC, and a few along the Gulf Coast still cling to SBC.  However, it it best to call and ask, rather than guess.

Subject: Applicable Building Codes in Texas

I am doing an evaluation of a chemical plant in Texas regarding any possible code violations (structural, in particular). Can anyone tell me what building code (if any) was in effect for Texas in the year 2000?
