RE: Building Permit in Monterey County

Title: Message
The wine storage tanks are usually made of 12 ga. stainless steel.  I don't believe there are designe per APA or AWWA code at all.  If the anchors are designed per UBC or whatever the governing code, they would be over designed because the anchors will never see the forces it's designed for under a seismic event because the tank wall will buckle first.  Usually the tanks will be fabricated and shipped with some number of attachment point determined by the fabricator.  So I'm wondering what's the justification on requiring the anchors to be designed by the book.

You will need to design and get a permit for all of the above.

Has anyone done any structural work in Monterey County?
 
I tried to call the building department but I'm getting answers slowly.
 
I have a winery project in the central cost, I wondering if a building permit is required for wine storage tanks (very large tanks, 12'-15' diameter, 20'-25' height) anchorage.  I think the tank foundation needs to have a permit.  What about the anchor designs, since the tanks are not really designed per any code requirement.  Also the catwalk system that's needed to access the top of the tank.  I think these are considered "process equipment" and does not need any building permit. 
 
Any ideas?  Thanks
