RE: Plan Check question

Tarek-

I've seen this request before and have refused to do it.

Most E&O carriers don't want structural engineers to practice geotechnical
engineering and, once the soils report is on a drawing with your title
block, guess what you are doing?

||
||This requirement from plan checkers comes up every once in a while
||and I wanted to know how others dealt with it.
||A plan checker has asked that we copy the soils report recommendations
||onto our foundation plan. It seems to me that since those
||recommendations where neither prepared by me or under my supervision,
||it would be illegal on my part, also there is a question in my mind
||about the liability issue, what is your opinion ?
