"Who owns that?" Filling Design Gaps Between Landscape Architects, Architects, and Engineers - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)
Recorded On: 10/27/2023
This session explores the potential scoping gap where landscape architecture, structural engineering, civil engineering, and waterproofing come together. Designing the sub-surface support for site hardscapes and shallow foundations is not trivial, and complications abound at this interface between pavements, foundations, drainage, utilities, soils, and root systems.
- Define the challenges posed by varying underlying strata to hardscape support structures.
- Show how to develop a coordinated design that defines the slab design objectives and provides a consistent basis for decision making.
- Explain options for designing support slabs over varying underlying materials (buried structures, horticultural soils, structural soils, etc.).
- Recommend construction practices for coordination of trades and vendors.
