Site visit - Soils.

Friday, December 3, 2010

A visit to the site and its surroundings should always be made to record everything relevant from a careful examination of the nature of the subsoil, vegetation, evidence of marshy ground, signs of ground water and flooding, irregularities in topography, ground erosion and ditches and flat ground near streams and rivers where there may be soft alluvial soil. A record should be made of the foundations of old buildings on the site and cracks and other signs of movement in adjacent buildings as evidence of ground movement.
