Subsurface projects can spell tremendous liability and risk concerns for geotechnical engineers, who pay among the highest liability insurance rates among A/E/C professionals. Written for a non-legal audience by a recognized liability authority, this helpful book brings together the information and expertise needed to manage the non-technical aspects of such projects. Discusses the implications of errors and omissions, applicable law, bid and contract document disclosure, and much more. Filled with relevant case studies.

Written by the former Deputy Counsel and Risk Manager for the Big Dig from 1996 to 2005, Virginia Greiman, this book describes the numerous risks faced by the project manager and the lessons learned that have never before been written about despite the huge volume of news articles and reports that have been published on the Big Dig. New insights based on excerpts of interviews offer new perspective on the challenges and accomplishments of the Big Dig, and separates this book from other texts in the field.

- Introduction - The key processes - The essential principles - The client's role - The designer's role - The constructor's role Reviews Ground conditions are a major contributory factor in the construction industry to cost and timeable overruns, and to structural damage. Engineering practice has been based upon the premise that such eventualities can be countered by the proper use of site investigation during project location, design and construction. However, experience has shown that investigation alone is an insufficient insurance because of errors and inadequacies which fail to be appreciated at a sufficiently early stage. One way of over-coming this situation, which is becoming increasingly used, is the introduction of a culture risk recognition and assessment within the civil engineering process. This book is the result of a co-operative industry-wide study, sponsored by the DETR and The Institution of Civil Engineers, into the methods by which such a risk culture can be integrated into geotechnical engineering. After laying down some principles, the book separately addresses the perspective of the client, the designer and the constructor providing best practice guidelines on the handling of geotechnical risk. The key recommendation, as far as geotechnical specialists are concerned, is the development of a detailed protocol for a geotechnical risk management system, including prioritised risk registers, which can be applied from inception to completion of the project. For engineering geologists a widening use of risk registers as a management tool raises interesting challenges. Such registers need to be established soon after the geotechnical adviser is appointed, prior to physical investigation, and well before the start of design. At that stage geological risk arising from geological uncertainty and ground hazards is identifiable through desk studies and walkover surveys. Engineering geologists will, therefore have a key role to play in the development of such registers from the very start. The subsequent identification of geotechncial risk arises from the consequence of construction in uncertain ground conditions. The recognisable geological uncertainties and hazards do not themselves generate identifiable geotechnical risks until the project requirements are formulated. Therefore, risk registers must necessarily be developed in an iterative manner. However, the illustrative risk registers in the book are all mature having been used by constructors on actual projects. There is less clarity as to the preceding, evolutionary steps through which a geotechnical risk register must inevitably pass in the successive project stages of location, investigation and design. The book is clearly written, and ilustrated. There is a comprehensive reference list, with appendices on risk registers, risk software and brief case histories. An educational CDrom-based video is provided. This is a benchmark publication which will have significant influence on geotechnical practice. All engineering geologists should have it on their bookshelf, if not on their desk top. John Knill, Geoscientitst, Nov 2001
