If you have ever read a Geo Tech report ...

You would understand.

There are always clauses in the report that negates liability on some portion of the design work when you are talking about a project of this scale.

There was a recent project in my home town that was a development on a river bank. The Geo Tech report didn't like the soil and required pilings and they still wouldn't sign off on it.

The local government jurisdiction used their engineers to do the special inspections and sign off on the work.

It was the only way for the project to move forward.

These things happen all the time.

Risks are weighed and decisions are made.

That is how it is done.
