RE: Reflections on a Great Profession

Oh! And projects can obviously accommodate higher fees, because a lot of
clients are builders, who step through the office door, cursing and swearing
about some engineer or other. The builders, have got development approval
but the solution they have is impractical to build. The original building
designers and engineers are unwilling to change the design, apparently even
unwilling to even discuss the problem.

So the owners and builders are willing to scrap everything and pay to get an
alternative solution and seek development approval again. So if they paid
more in the first place, worked with the designers, they would have saved a
lot of time. Given the unaccounted cost of delay they could have probably
saved money as well, by paying more upfront for design.

But Adelaide is likened to a big country town, remote with limited access to
resources, rather than the state capital it is. So we do have a different
and potentially unique economic environment.
