For a good resource on what codes a city/county/state uses go to:
Create a user account (free)
Go to Building Codes (link at bottom of main page)
Type in the city, county or state that you would like to look up.
The web site lists both the required code and the code official contact info.

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.
