If there are complex ground conditions detected during soil tests, there is usually a need to prepare additional documentation:
Often, as part of the geological and engineering documentation, a forecast of the impact of the designed objects on the environment and a description of geodynamic processes (if any) are made.
The time needed to prepare the geological and engineering documentation depends on the company that carries it out, the size of the task, and the efficiency of the offices.
In practice, approximately three months elapse from the submission of the geological work plan to the receipt of approval of the geological-engineering documentation. In special cases, of course, this time may be extended.
Geological and engineering documentation consists of a descriptive part and a graphic part.
The geological and engineering documentation contains detailed conclusions and recommendations regarding the method of drainage and foundation.
The graphic part includes maps showing various ranges, e.g. geological and engineering conditions, sections, sounding cards. Additionally, it includes a table with geotechnical parameters and a summary of the results of laboratory tests of soil and water (if they were performed).
