RE: CSI Guidelines - Drawing Notes?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The case of Scotch went to the owner not the architect.
Also, I bet it clearly shown in the bidding specifications.  So, it's not a kickback if it is part of the actual bidding documents.
Now, it is Politically correct?  Why should that matter on a Owner driven project.

Putting a kickback in a contract sounds like a good way to be biting the pillow at the big house.  I was watching a show on it the other night – the secret is to kick someones ass on the first night or get punked.

Any way you can get them to read the specs?
That has been my problem for the longest time.

A long time ago an astute architect with whom I was working tucked into an obscure paragraph of the project manual a requirement for the contractor to deliver a case of the owner's favorite scotch to him within 7 days of contract award.  When it arrived he knew he had a contractor who thoroughly read the specifications.  :)
