1 record set: Structural Engineer
1 record set: Architect
1 record set: General Contractor
1 record set: Erector
1 record set: Fabricator
1 record set: Detailer

The extras come in where the general contractor and erector want extra sets:
1 extra set general's main office
1 extra set general's job trailer
1 extra set erector's main office
1 extra set erector's job trailer
1-3 extra sets erector's field crew

If the approval drawings are approved "as marked", then it's cheaper (for
the contractor) to make the SE do all the marking.  So, the SE gets 12 sets
of drawings to mark up.
