This chapter focuses on the importance of establishing well-defined functional interfaces between pipeline geotechnical and construction specialists. It identifies impediments to, and benefits of, early engagement of pipeline construction advisors in the work of the pipeline engineering design team in critical project execution planning activities. These activities involve topics such as route selection (both pipeline and access alignments), right-of-way design, and engineering mitigation design details as they relate to anticipated geotechnical and geohazard conditions. A case history is used to highlight some of these points and the importance of the geotechnical/construction interface.
