Methodology for Seismic Design and Construction and Single-Family Dwellings: Cost Impact Analysis   [open pdf - 6MB]

"This report presents the results of a detailed analysis of the increased costs imposed by the earthquake resistive construction recommendations specified in the report titled 'A Methodology for Seismic Design and Construction of Single Family Dwelling', hereafter referred to as the Report. [...] The impact of the Report on the cost of construction was determined for each design, using the Los Angeles region as a base area for incremental cost determinations and assuming the differential in cost to be the difference between the requirements of the Report and the requirements of the Conventional Construction Provisions and other applicable sections of the Uniform Building Code, 1973 edition."
