Design Considerations Using Geotechnical Reports

Take a closer look at Geotechnical Reports and their practical uses for design consultants. This topic will include an overview of what all should be included in a geotechnical report to help owners and architects prepare adequate scope of services for their consultants. The material will also cover how different consultants in the design process can make use of the geotechnical report, as well as, how owners and other professionals can use them to make practical decisions on site selection, building type, and even overall layout. In the end, you will walk away with a more diverse view of how to use these reports to best suit your interests. The presenter, Michael Howell, combines his vast experience in many sides of the construction industry with his experience as a professional 'Ghost and Graveyard' tour guide to deliver this information in a way that is as enlightening technically as it is entertaining that you are sure to enjoy.
