Working Together by Jonathan Clark

In architecture working together can be applied to so many different aspects of the industry. Coworkers, clients, consultants, the public, etc. I want to focus on working together with the various building departments that have jurisdiction over our projects. For most of our projects that is either a city or county building department (and many 3rd party plan check companies that are hired by these jurisdictions).
