Re: Column to Column via End Plate

Bill, The California Building Code, which incorporated the 1997 UBC is dated 1998.  The City of Los Angeles adopted the 1997 UBC into their Code as part of the 1999 Los Angeles City Code.  I suppose that the answer depends on the city that the project is in and when their City Council adopted the ’97 UBC.

When was the 1997 UBC adopted in California?


The reason I’m asking is that I’m doing a remodel and the existing plans are dated 03/31/1999. I’m not sure if the masonry walls were designed to the 1997 UBC or the 1994 UBC.
