I’ve been so busy, I’m weeks late with following up on a post my colleague and I put together and published on the blog of the firm she works for! Busy is good, but work can be SO distracting.
Morayma Salas, a client, personal friend, former coworker, and fellow Denver Chapter CSI member, came up with the idea for this article and did most of the surveying of construction professionals, and then I wrote it.
Here’s the ending of our article: “Architects are often extremely creative people who like to do things their own way. However, following the rules about placement of information doesn’t take creativity away from the design process. Following the rules actually frees up more time to be creative with the things that should be part of the design process. So don’t waste your time getting creative with naming parts of your specs or placement of information! Follow CSI’s standards for locating information and apply the time you save to the design your projects.”
