Wow…plans checkers that don’t read the drawings or notes?




Well, lucky for me, we don’t have this problem in Chicago.

Subject: Plan Checkers?


So I have been getting back jobs from plan checkers and a lot of the problems that they point out are not problems and they are actually on the plans or SGN's. It seems like they don't ever read the plans because their corrections are either stated in the SGN's or typical details. Does anyone else have this problem and if so is there anything that can be done about their laziness to actually do their job and not just assume?
