Geotechnical engineers apply the science of rock and soil mechanics to investigate subsurface and geologic conditions and design foundations and earth structures. This course provides architects and related professionals with an overview of geotechnical consulting services at various stages of a typical project, from due diligence through design and construction. Case studies are shared to illustrate the geotechnical engineer’s involvement on typical New York City building projects and how to satisfy the requirements of the New York City Building Code for exploration and design through all phases of the typical project.
The course meets the pre-design and design criteria for health, safety, and welfare considerations relative to soils analysis and geotechnical engineering design to ensure the structural integrity or soundness of the excavations surrounding a site and the foundations of a new building. The course provides important information on the health and safety of workers during subsurface exploration activities, how the New York City Building Code establishes minimum safety factors for soil and rock failure during the temporary support of excavation for foundation construction, and how the use of project-specific specifications can lead to safely constructed buildings.
