RE: BUILDING CODE: Statewide Building Code for Kansas?

You are right.  It is a municipal issue.  Last year we had a project in the city of Lawrence.  They adopted UBC-97.

Subject: BUILDING CODE: Statewide Building Code for Kansas?


Can anyone shed some light on the current requirements for building code compliance in the state of Kansas?

The only thing I can find "for sure" is in the "Kansas Statutes Annotated," K.S.A. 31-134a (CAUTION: link launches a PDF), which actually addresses the fire code. It states that as long as you comply with one of the listed codes (including 2000 IBC), you comply with the state's fire prevention code. Elsewhere, I find indications that individual municipalities adopt building codes; sounds perhaps similar to what we have in Texas where there's no statewide code, and it's a municipal issue.

So what's the real deal, here?
