Joshua Kardon, a Berkeley, California Structural Engineer, has written fairly extensively on "Standard of Care" issues. What I've seen of his work is very readable. One of his presentations is online at:

CASE did publish some coordination/scope guidelines but I’m not sure if that is the kind of “Standard of Care” info you are looking for.   http://www.acec.org/coalitions/CASE/case-publications.cfm

Subject: Foundation settlement
 
Does anyone know of a published standard that states what typical allowable foundation and or SOG settlements can be. I am looking for something similar to the allowable deflection criteria in table 1604.3 of IBC 2003 but for foundation settlement.
 
Also, is there a published Structural Engineers Code of Ethics or Standard of Care –
 
Thanks,
