Not necessarily for "design" but generally there should be items in the geo report for suitable backfill material, compaction requirements, soil testing requirements, etc. that would be specific for "construction".

RE: Geotech reports

I can see it being referenced.  But does anyone rely on it for design direction to the contractor?

RE: Geotech reports

We reference the soils report in our general notes and its often contained in its entirety
in the project specs.

Geotech reports


I have an architect who wants the geotech report text to be part of the contract documents for construction.  I can see it for the bore logs and tests.  Your thoughts?
