"Do it once and do it right."
The shortest distance, between the concept and the completion is a clear and precise set of understandable
and easily interpreted documents, be they written or delineated. A picture is worth a thousand words, except
in construction. Contractors interpret that phrase differently, a picture without a thousand words, is worth
more than one that is worded. Clarity in contract documents starts at the very beginning of the design, often
while the architect is discussing the project with the client. As the design grows and takes form, it gathers
information and the recording of that data, is tantamount in the process of construction. A building is never
“finished”. It will continue and grow aging with the patina of the selected palate of materials, both internally and externally.
