The site investigation is to be performed to obtain the solution for the following problems:

i)  Foundation problems

ii)  Ground water problems

iii) Construction problems

iv)  Fixation of responsibility in a law suit if major redesign is warranted based on  the excavations for construction. Subsequent building damages from settlement or other foundation problems which could have been avoided by having proper soil investigation.
