Mark, The current NEHRP is the 1994 and may be obtained from FEMA. The FEMA reference numbers are FEMA 222A and FEMA 223A. The 222A is the Provisions and the 223A is the Commentary. There is also a set of maps that go with it. Occasionally you need to remind them of the maps. The NEHRP Provisions are very similar to the ASCE 7-95 seismic section. The FEMA documents are free. ASCE 7 is not. The FEMA documents should be available from your local FEMA office or from Washington, D.C. @ 202-646-3484. Keep the title in mind. The document is for "New Buildings". Your building will probably not comply. The Building Seismic Safety Council prepared this document for FEMA. They and the ATC are in the final stages of another document "Guidelines for the Seismic Rehabilitation of Buildings". This document is more applicable for existing construction. Harold Sprague Black & Veatch ---------- From: seaoc To: seaoc Subject: [SEAOC] NEHRP Date: Thursday, September 12, 1996 3:07PM I have a client who is in the process of obtaining financing for the purchase of a single story 1930's era building. The occupancy of the building is changing and as such the local building department has required it be upgraded per the 91 UCBC. The building construction consists of reinforced cast in place concrete walls, straight sheathed diaphragm and open store-front. The UCBC upgrade has presented no problems but the lender has thrown a curve. The lender has asked for evidence that the construction conforms with the "National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program Recommended Provisions for the Development of Seismic Regulations for New Building". Who knows where a copy of this document can be obtained? Thanks, Mark ... ...
