New Podcast – Case History #64: Communication is Key

GBA Emerging Leaders Class

GBA has published over 100 case histories based on real-life events that have happened to geoprofessional firms. GBA Case Histories are unique because our members share real-life stories of problems that impacted their businesses. They also include the outcomes of corrective action, and lessons learned.

This episode in the series explores Case History #64 where the GBA Member Firm’s civil engineer client developed the geotechnical engineering scope of services for exploration on and around an existing landfill, without adequately conveying the project goals to the geotechnical engineer. The civil engineer then erred when transferring information from the member’s report to a set of plans. Both the civil engineering firm and Member Firm settled the ensuing claim but paid more than they believed was merited for their respective involvement.
