In Edmonton, Alberta building officials are enforcing Article 22.214.171.124 of the Alberta Building Code (National Building Code) which requires a geotechnical investigation for each project falling under Part 4 of the Code (ie structures over 6000 sf).
My practice has, and continues to be requiring geotechnical information either by prior investigation or confirmation of assumed conditions by direct inspection and field tests during construction by the structural engineer of record or his represenative. Assumed conditions are obtained from previous geotechnical investigations near or adjacent to the specific site.
My own experience has shown that construction method has had a greater impact on cost than design method.
