RE: Removing yourself as EOR

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I had a new building, when I came to the site to observe the wall
reinforcing I saw that the footings for an 18' retaining wall had been
shotcreted, not screed, no where near level, shotcrete was fired directly
into the footing bottoms and had mixed soil in with the shotcrete, steel
frame base plates and anchors were very displaced. The #9 wall bars had 18"
laps in some places. I was appalled. The Owner who was the designer signed a
letter removing me as the EOR, which was given to the building department.
They hired a new engineer and resubmitted new plans. I do not know what
corrections were made or if the contractor stayed on the job.

I sent a letter to the CBO before construction started. The owner then
needed to find someone to observe during construction (& be responsible for
any changes). My contract has provisions to cover this kind of thing (plan
ahead :o) Chuck Utzman, PE
