Re: Plan Check question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I have a question for you.  Did you use the recommendation from the soil report?  If you did, isn't more prudent for you to include that as the basis of your design?  I would feel better to include the source of my soil bearing values.

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 ?
