Yeah, In an "ideal world", this appears to be the solution. The problem is
that I do not think I'm the only one that is busy (the "subcontract" firm
may put me on the back burner if it takes the assignment at all) plus the
economics would dictate that I would have a difficult time in making enough
money to be worth the risk (as if any structural engineering work is worth
the risk, but that's another thread).
