Problems during site excavation and foundation construction for Federal buildings have troubled the General Services Administration (GSA) since the early 1960's. Since 1973, GSA has paid contractors over $16 million for extra costs caused by site excavation and foundation construction problems. Outstanding claims against GSA for similar problems total $6.8 million. Years of project delays and millions of dollars in additional leasing and administrative costs have resulted from these problems.
