    i was wondering if you can be more specific and give some examples on '

    • There were a lot of "when you are doing xxx for a developer, who do you contact or bring to the site"

    you mean different engineers or zoning or building code officials? 

     

    Thanks!!

    Hi Yi,

    Yes to all of that. Lots of different situations where your client wants to do something to the building, whether that's a reno, an addition, demolish etc. and you need to recommend what to do first.

    Do you have recommendations on soil videos on youtube? I've tried finding good ones, but all the videos I found very extremely boring/sort of unrelated. Thanks!

    Shreya, I used this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDWODdPMNEM&list=PLbCwVAjlw5bBGcWVwwdjJ_zbPd8yGQI2x

    Its dull, sorry!

    Xixiao, this is Jenny's notes: https://arendurance.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/spdnotes_jennypdx2.pdf

    Remember, this is for the 4.0 SPD exam, but there was still a lot of overlap for PA.
