I agree with Larry that there is no structure, other than the concrete pad.
 If Ch. 15 is applicable in the plan check engineer's eyes, which 
system/structure type would apply from Table 15.4-1?  The mech'l unit is 
"designed" to resist inertial loads by the manufacturer.  All we do is 
design the anchorage and support of that unit.  I would argue that Ch. 13 
is appropriate, and not ch. 15.  Good luck.
