I am currently designing a new store front for an existing building. The building contains a 10'-0" wide canopy along the front (code is ASCE 7-10). With regards to GCpi and canopies, would you use GCpi = +/-0.55 or +/-0.18. I would lean towards +/-0.55 as the wind is not allowed to flow over the top of the building as it is being trapped by the canopy.
