You should be fine....I'm sure all an engineer would do is stick their head out the windown and look for collapsed buildings and check local papers for similar that you have done the leg work, you can save your money.

Seriously? Highly unlikely you will have any problems but given you want some assurance (hence the question) you should check locally; someone in authority associated with your building. Answering your question would require at the very least some knowledge of codes in China or in the absence of that the exact thickness of the concrete, spacing of columns, rebar used, mpa of concrete used etc. etc. etc. for any sort of definitive advice.
