I'm evaluating an existing building, which was constructed with Masonry shear walls. The walls conform to the requirements of Intermediate Reinforced Masonry Shear Walls, which are not permitted in SDC D. Is there a way to retrofit the walls such that they will behave as Special Reinforced Masonry Shear Walls, or otherwise be allowable in SDC D?
