Yeah, but sometimes those engineers in your companies are lazy or dumb.
The last three projects that I started I had to rework all of the elevations around my buildings. They had the elevations of the swales for removing
the rain higher than the floor elevations of my buildings. I have found that the landscaping and drainage usually have the most problems in the plans
and than the curbing elevations.
It was the same firm on all 3 projects. Of course they offered to rework my engineering plan each time for $5000, but I did the work myself. Did I get
any kick back from my company for my extra work? Hell no. They told me it was my job.
