Minor Changes

    This one hits home! I’ve lost count of how many times the client has some “minor changes” after the whole set is basically done! Once I had a client ask for the “minor change” of deleting two of the larger dwelling units in a multi-family project and designing three smaller ones to fill the space. They don’t realize this changes everything from the code/egress analysis to door/window schedules, elevations and everything else! It’s like the client never took a serious at the drawings until they were practically done!

    At my old firm almost a weekly occurrence and many times not compensated. Where I work now, revisions are tracked and charged for, mostly successfully!
