Can NCARB or someone explain why answer C is correct? The explanation doesn't really expand on why this is the right answer.
I answered A because my thought was that a structural analysis should start with the soil..If the soil can't support the additional load, then the project isn't feasible..unless you take measures to add additional support structure, but still in this case you'd want to understand the soil makeup and how much additional structure you need and where.
Is it because the Geotech is a consultant that should be hired by the owner, not the architect?
