I realize this is off the question but ...
What is the purpose of the pt cables in the walls, i.e. are they perpendicular for slab reinforcing or are they in the plane of the wall? If in the plane of the wall what purpose do they serve? I believe the code (UBC) specifically limits the use of PT cables in seismic resisting elements, they can pass through, be anchored etc but should not be used to provide flexural strength in the element itself.
I am a little confused by your description of the length of each wall, its vertical projection above the top of the foundation, etc
