There is no other way to keep everything where it should be

With the redesign last week, we felt like we were ready for the initial meeting with the Mechanical/Electric/Plumbing engineers. We had been talking with them about the project for the past few weeks, but this is the first time that we were giving them a set of plans.

General Contractor set out the goal that before we walked into that meeting we would have everything as complete as possible - including equipment package, dimensions and spacing, and any other potential questions. So the weekend was spent refining and tweaking (mostly by the architect) but the GC and I helped where appropriate.

The result, we were well prepared and the meeting went smoothly. Hopefully we saved ourselves a little time on the engineering front as we provided them with the necessary information up front for them to do their job. The engineers asked tough questions and questioned our assumptions but it is like the GC is fond of saying "You don't want an engineer that is not a skeptic".
