    Hi Artem,

    On top of Suchitra's recommendation, I would also say check out PEA and MEEB.

    Hi Elif. 

    I did study MEEB, but what is PEA?

    Thank you,

    I think it's Site Planning and Design Handbook by T.Russ

    PEA is probably Plumbing, Electricity, Acoustics by Lechner.

    I'm specifically looking for the guidelines on where the soil needs to be stabilized relative to the building on the site and where to locate the drainage receptacles. Based on the configuration and location of the building different portions of the site might need stabilization...would like to learn about that...

    I briefly skimmed through SPDH by T.Russ but it talks about site stabilization in general - not relative to the building.

    SPDH helped me pass SPD in 4.0

    water travels down so it will go from the higher contour to the lower. I think In Ballast there was a question as to where water will go, if I remember it correctly it was 90 degrees to the contour but many other factors matter as well, swale, etc.

    Look at https://www.epa.gov/sites/production/files/2015-10/documents/sw_swppp_guide.pdf 

    this link also helped me.

    Thank you, this is a good resource.

    But I'm particularly trying to figure out where necessary stabilization has to occur specifically relative to the shape if the building contour.

    I think this source still talks about stabilization in general terms - not relative to the building.

    Artem, 

    Have you taken the PPD yet?  I just took it today (got a more than likely failed) had two questions that related to these topics and would like to know as well.  I was taken by surprise by the two questions for these two topics.and the way that they were asked.

    I am studying for PPD too and would be interested in understanding more about retain walls and their physical relationship to the building envelope.

    Brian,

    I'm about to take the test and still have not found the material to answer the questions I posted above your message:

    drainage organization on building site (where to drain water), soil stabilization on building site (where to stabilize soil).

    Similarly, have not found materials for location of a building near bodies of water in various climates. There are several

    threads here but none seems to have found the useful info.

    Patrick,

    If you mean "retaining walls" - those would be type of structures to organize grade changes and not 

    part of the building envelope. They are well described in both Fundamentals of Building Construction and Building Construction Illustrated.
