The _PROPOSED_ ASCE standard "Design Loads on Structures During Construction" is currently in the fourth committee ballot. Relevant suggestions are: 6.0: "The basic reference for computation of environmental loads is the 1995 edition of ASCE 7." 6.1.1: "The design wind speed shall be taken as the following factor times the basic wind speed in ASCE 7: Construction Period Factor less than 6 weeks 0.75 6 weeks to one year 0.8 one to two years 0.85" 184.108.40.206: "For construction between November 1 and July 31 (outside of the hurricane season), the unfactored basic wind speed of 90 mph shall be permitted for structures sited near the Gulf Coast and Eastern Seaboard where ASCE 7 specified basic wind speed exceeds 90 mph. "Between August 1 and October 31, basic wind speed of 90 mph shall be permitted provided additional bracing is prepared in advance and applied in time before the onset of an announced hurricane." Remember, this is still just a _PROPOSED_ standard.
