Abstract
In building work, the most significant element is getting the valuable information of ground in which the building project is to be founded. We obtain the information via field Investigation Nowadays this work has been considered as part of the contractual obligation. The importance in implementing field investigation is seems to be slowly faded from a engineering point of view. As part of this contractual obligation, personnel involves in construction would only provide Site Investigation reports upon request or else designers tend to prescribe any design parameters based on intuitive values. Also the use of cut-price site investigation - or none at all – is a form of gambling. If the gamble pays off the company will have saved a small proportion of the costs. If not the additional on-going costs will inevitably exceed the price of competent site and field investigation report. This paper will provide practicing engineers a good insight into the importance of field investigation and its process by looking into old habits and getting away from it.
