Dealey, Renton & Associates, member of The Professional Liability Agents Network (PLAN), is happy to announce an upcoming Webinar that can earn 1.50 AIA/CES learning units for architects and qualified continuing education credits for engineers.
The program will include an in‐depth review of geotechnical issues including a survey of practicing geotechnical engineers regarding the testing methodologies and perceived reliability of their recommendations. Additionally, we will focus on the coordination of the structural, civil, and MEP designs with the geotechnical recommendations and discuss contractual issues related to the retention of the geotechnical engineer by design professionals and owners. Finally, the presentation will include three case studies in which damages were attributed to soil issues as well as the responsibility of the parties involved.
1. Understand the limits of the geotechnical report and procedures involved in calculating anticipated soils movement.
2. Determining if and when to temper your reliance on geotechnical recommendations
3. Discuss the standard of care for architects and other consultants in reviewing and analyzing the geotechnical report and coordinating their designs
4. Identify risk management techniques and procedures for projects with geotechnical concerns
5. Identify best practices for coordination of design and testing based on case studies
