Abstract
The Tentative Provisions for the Development of Seismic Regulations for Buildings were developed by the Applied Technology Council to present, in one comprehensive document, current state-of-knowledge pertaining to seismic engineering of buildings. The Tentative Provisions are in the process of being assessed by the building community. This report is one of a series of reports that document the deliberations of a group of professionals jointly selected by the Building Seismic Safety Council and the National Bureau of Standards and charged with reviewing the Tentative Provisions prior to the conduct of trial designs. The report contains recommendations and records of the committee charged with the review of the material related to architectural, mechanical and electrical provisions. The committee made seven general recommendations for revision and one recommendation for the addition of a new section on elevator design requirements. These recommendations by Committee 8 were made to the parent group, the Joint Committee on Review and Refinement, and their action on these recommendations is documented in a companion report.
