Thanks for posting your example recoveringacademic, it is a fascinating document to have actually, to know about what's down under your land. Frustrating to have to pay for it though if you know for sure you are on good ground like us, but still have to get it done.
Many people will want to know the content SEs, QS, Architect, Digger driver, landscape folk; it's a bit like paying a parking fine... the sooner it gets paid and out the way the better. Sooner forgotten too.
Yes, Declan piles it is I think. Except I need to run this little joker to earth.... a comment made by Jeremy which I have included in the Draft Foundations Checklist
I posted a few minutes ago (fourth bullet point). In essence does he (our architect) know what he's talking about? That's why we approached Hilliard Tanner in Eire to do the SE bit of the foundations.
The whole of our area is alluvial clay, consequently there are hundreds and hundreds of small ponds around the place. And hence the darling newts.
