    True… and this usually happens Friday at the end of the day with a request for a response first thing Monday…

    Ha, I received a concrete submittal which was followed up immediately by a phone call saying they need an approval ASAP because the concrete truck is on it’s way.

    I’m not sure which is worse, that or the “we need this immediately” and then asking if I can send it again a month later because they lost the file & need to now release the work. THEN WHY WAS IT AN EMERGENCY THAT I GET IT DONE A MONTH AGO?????

    Doesn’t matter how many times during weekly project meetings I ask….”Are your submittals in well in advance?” As the client, I’ve actually held a “critical” submittal for several days to remind the contractor that the contract gives the designer up to 30 days for review.
