Abstract

At the earliest possible time during the development of a building project the architect, along with his engineer, should make a preliminary investigation of the site. The purpose of this investigation is to acquaint both the architect and the engineer with conditions peculiar to that site. The investigation will give the architect information as to site access, topography, and the existence of physical barriers such as sharp drop-offs, lakes, or streams of running or stagnant water.
