Geoprofessionals' Value Proposition

Alert
Geoprofessionals add significant value to construction and environmental projects.
 
Definition
Geoprofessionals provide geotechnical, geologic, environmental, construction materials engineering and testing, and related professional services.
 
Benefits
Those who deploy their geoprofessionals wisely derive the most value, principally in the form of:
•   lower overall cost as a result of better scopes that limit unforeseeable expenses and better designs that limit foreseeable expenses,
•   improved schedule compliance through avoidance of unanticipated delays,
•   more effective risk management that lowers the possibility of failure, and
•   sustainable solutions that minimize waste.
 
Wise Deployment
Clients demonstrate wise deployment when they:
1.  engage geoprofessionals who are experienced and trusted,
2.  give their geoprofessionals opportunities to contribute value, and
3.  engage their geoprofessionals during the project’s planning stage and have them serve as project-team members through project delivery.
 
Warning
Underground risks are the most substantial project risks. Marginalizing geoprofessionals’ project role and/or treating geoprofessional services as commodities makes it virtually impossible to derive the benefits.
