help understanding the IBC 2003 requirements for determining the design loads
for a site retaining wall not near a building in Pennsylvania. IBC Section
1614.1, exceptions allows for design based on ASCE 7. ASCE Section
22.214.171.124 - Earth-Retaining Structures, 126.96.36.199.1 refers back to Section
188.8.131.52. This Section 184.108.40.206 - Investigation, falls under
Seismic Design Categories D, E, & F. We have determined that the
buildings we are designing elsewhere on the site are Seismic Design
Category C. Are they referring to 220.127.116.11 to define that
investigation is needed, not that we need to be Category D, E, or
