Last Month, Ramtech’s Vice President of Engineering Roland Brown, was notified that he was reappointed as the Presiding Officer of the Texas Industrialized Building Code Council. Since the council was formed in 1984, Roland has been the only representative from the commercial modular building industry to hold the presiding officer position. He was reelected unanimously by the other ten members on the council, which functions as an advisory board for the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation on issues related to the regulation of the industrialized housing and commercial building industries.
Originally appointed to the Council by former Texas Governor Rick Perry in October 2010, Roland was reappointed by Governor Greg Abbott in 2019 to serve another two-year term which will expire on February 1, 2021. Roland is the longest serving member in the history of the Texas IBCC.
In addition to his service on the IBCC, he is currently on the board of directors as Past President for the Modular Building Institute, the international nonprofit trade association that represents the commercial modular construction industry. Roland is also a member of the International Code Council where he has been an advocate for addressing code and compliance issues that affect the modular building industry. Roland began his career in the modular building industry in 1981, and since that time he has developed a long track record of creating unique structural designs which have made significant contributions to the technical evolution of the commercial modular industry.
