One of the building we are designing is located in a low seismic zone, but because of poor soil type and building occupancy type IBC 2000 requires us to use a Special Moment Resisting Frame System. My understanding is that irrespective of the seismicity level since we are using a Response Modification Value 'R' of an SMRF, we have to meet all the seismic detailing requirements per chapter 21 of ACI-318. Is this a correct assumption?
