Has anyone ever compared the ASCE 7-02 component wind loads to the 1997 UBC wind loads for components? We started reviewing shop drawings for a project for claddding and girts for a transfer tower using the ASCE spec. and then found out we had to use the UBC. My calcs. show an increase in wind load of 50%. They are saying I am wrong but at this time won't review my calculations. It is costing the fabricator money.
It is exposure C at 105' high, 90 mph, 68 sf. area of cladding for the girt loading.
