Kathy: Seeing these blueprints really brings this project to life. I can now envision what this building will look like when it’s built.

Brett: I’m really glad. As the architect on this project, it’s my job to turn your ideas into design.

Kathy: You did a great job.

Brett: I had the help of the surveyors and a civil engineer, so I can’t take all of the credit.

Kathy: We’re ready now to solicit bids from general contractors, don’t you think?

Brett: These plans will give any contractor the specifications they need to give a detailed and accurate bid. There’ll be no problems with permits, I don’t think, because a similar structure was on this building site about 10 years ago before it was torn down.

Kathy: I’m hoping not to run into any stumbling blocks, but you never know with a building project. I’ll know we’ve cleared the hurdles when I can bring in the interior designers!
