I disagree with Fred!

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     The size of the building being considered in the design is immaterial 
     gentlemen. It is the human life at stake. What would you feel if the 
     less than 5000 SF Steel or Concrete Building in question collapsed and 
     it so happens that someone close to you is in there. Wouldn't you be 
     blaming the designer? The size of our project does not diminish the 
     fact that we should put the same amount of effort, intelligence and 
     the much needed details for that building to serve its purpose and 
     protect human life.

Stan, I could not agree with you more!  Are there any other issues that 
we should be concerned with, I would think so.
