Title: RE: Federal building code future
From Navy web page http://www.efdlant.navfac.navy.mil/Lantops_15/home.htm:
"The seismic design criteria for new buildings is TI-809-04, "Seismic Design for Buildings" dated December 1998. This manual replaces both NAVFAC P-355, Seismic Design for Buildings, 1992 and NAVFAC P-355.1, Seismic Design Guidelines for Essential Buildings, 1986. ALL FY00 PROJECTS SHALL USE THIS NEW CRITERIA per Commander, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, HDN/ESC57 letter of 3 May 1999 <ftp://www.efdlant.navfac.navy.mil/downl/Lantops_15/TI80904_LETTER.PDF> and Commander, Naval Facilities Engineering Command, HDN/ESC57 letter of 7 June 1999 <ftp://www.efdlant.navfac.navy.mil/downl/Lantops_15/SEISMIC_DESIGN_NEW_BLDG_LTR2.PDF>.
The primary basis for TI-809-04 is the 1997 edition of the National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program (NEHRP) Provisions for Seismic Regulations for New Buildings and Other Structures, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) document 302. A working knowledge of the 1997 NEHRP Provisions will be a requirement to execute a successful design. ..."

What I have never understood, is why they don't require all of their Federal buildings and structures to follow/comply with the NEHRP Provisions they/we have all been investing in since 1985? With the IBC 2000 based on the 97 NEHRP Provisions, I don't understand why there would be an interest or a need in a "Federal Building Code"?
PS: "There are actually 'three' sides to every issue: 1) your side; 2) the other fellow's; and 3) the right one!" But you say "(or more)" . . . I did forget about "The Building Official's"!
