What do Contractors Look for in Drawings?

A panel of contractors will discuss what they look for in architectural drawings. They will share their opinions on what architects can do to communicate more clearly to ensure accurate bids and a problem free construction project. Bring a set of your drawings and specifications so that the panel can share feedback on what they feel works and what doesn't. This is a chance to get valuable input from contractors that deal with numerous projects,both commercial and residential of all shapes and sizes.
