structures in high seismic risk areas.

Thanks  everyone for the replies. I just found out that my original inquiry
to another  engineer ended up bouncing around a few of the big offices in
San Francisco.  Some were not aware of the zone 3&4 1% Ag rule in the 97UBC
and one was  preparing for a big 5 digit increase in rebar. One explained
that UBC never  picked up on chapter 1 of ACI that indicates that its
provisions do not apply to  portions of piles embedded in the ground.
