Yes, PEMB. Good point. Still, I don't have the old code to calc the wind load it would have been designed for at the time. Hmmm....
OH, I just read metal building also... PEMB? So if this is clad in steel siding and deck roof, it is probably a lightweight structure, so I really doubt that seismic would govern. Is that your thought too?

I have ASCE 31-03 (Seismic Evaluation of Existing Buildigns), but the problem I'm having is the owner doesn't have any record drawings on the superstructure, just the foundations. The superstructure is a metal building on a pile supported foundation system. Since I have no way to evaluate the superstructure against today's codes, my hope was that I could at least compare the seismic loads it would have been designed for in 1974 vs. the loads required by today's code. I have the '94 SBC, and if I can't find anything from '74 I'll at least make a comparison with it, but I'd rather compare to the original code if possible.
