    and they make more money than architects without whom they wouldn’t exist. That sucks§

  2. MrJackson

    This goes both ways.

    • Bill Redmond

      Agreed.

    To be fair. I have requested same day drawings, and near impossible deadlines.

    • SMF

      And yet they make those. But if you give them realistic deadlines and expectations they deliver at 11:59 pm on the due date and have errors galore…

    Well maybe if you didn’t keep changing the background and floorplan every week…. :)

    • SMF

      And yet, we have those same changes from our clients and still seem to get the drawings completed, dated correctly, labeled correctly and not missing in the final set. And not get comments on our design from the city plan/permit review. Plus no RFI from the GC’s bidding. Weird that…
