Title: RE: code soil values vs. site specific values

Of course not!  Then again, concrete and steel aren't nearly as site-sensitive, nor as expansive, as our world-class black gumbo clays.

Are the Structural Engineers in Texas as well connected as it appears the geotechs are?  :<)

It is a good thing that you are practicing in liberal State of California, and not in the great conservative State of Texas!  The Texas PE Board clearly views foundation design without a site-specific geotechnical investigation and report as failing to meet "generally accepted engineering

standards or procedures"...
