In general, did the implementation of 90 mph wind speeds, as opposed to the former 70 mph speeds in the code, affect an increase in the amount of reinforcing required in load-bearing 8-inch concrete-block walls that support roof loads with steel bar joists? The structure I am concerned with is a movie theater with high walls to accomodate a sloping floor and the screen height in the seating area.
