External Pressure Coefficient - Circular Tower - Reg

Dear All

I am looking at regular circular shaped tall building with aspect ratio 1:5. This is in the concept stage. Can i get a reference to get net external pressure coefficient for this circular shape, which must be less than 1.35?

In BS 6399, the net pressure coefficient will come around 0.7 instead of 1.3.

But i need to follow ASCE for the computation of wind loads. Please let me know what would be the best estimation for this.
