RE: Level of Detailing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]



I wasn’t talking about the $500k…I was referring to my own a/r where we

Have a bunch of knuckleheads that are in the $10-20k range…



If a client gets to $500k without payment, that is a management/front office

Failure, pure and simple.


As Barney Fife used to say, “You have to nip these things in the Bud, Ange!”

I agree (my office manager asks me why we don’t do this all the time)…

but the problem is that in the fairly close knit architectural

Community like we have in Chicago, by doing that, you quickly get

The rep as being “the guy who sues everybody over fees”



Pardon me, but HALF A MILLION BUCKS?


I guess I’d rather have a “rep” over suing someone over that, than a “rep” for being “that structural engineer that does work for free.”


With respect.
