If the PE doesn't have soil report, as its was not provided by the client, his options are limited, his license is on the line as is his liability insurance, not a clients budget concerns.
I'm still not seeing where the PE is at fault here ...
Thanks for the input but you've gone so far off track and your not helping at all. Feel free to review the thread for info but your input is no longer wanted. I'm sorry about that.
