Description

The construction industry is all about identifying risks and being able to handle these risks properly. One risk associated with any construction site is the existing soil conditions. Whether it is contamination, water content, unstable soil or even frost, these risks need to be identified and the proper steps must be taken to mitigate these risks. Through reading studies from numerous authors it can be concluded that if the proper tests are performed and the proper steps are taken after the tests to mitigate whatever risks are found, money and time can be saved throughout the duration of the project.
