I tried for 3 months to get IBC-2000 90 MPH wind calcs from them for 
any of their self supporting towers.  They sent me UBC-97 70 MPH wind 
calcs that were not acceptable by my bldg dept.
They do not have a PE on staff.  they out source all their PE stuff 
out to a outside engineering company who doesn't seem to want to try 
to convert UBC-97 requirements to the newer IBC-2000 specs.
I went to Heights towers instead.
