For real estate professionals, evaluating the structure and the soil underneath is critical. Understanding environmental and health risks of a project has become even more important. Knowledge about the soil underneath is crucial to learning what can be built or redeveloped on a property.
In this webinar, you will get a basic understanding about the environmental conditions, soil types, topography, wetlands, drainage and other material conditions of project sites. Learn how to better understand environmental and soil reports and work more effectively with environmental and geotechnical consultants.
