This week I’ve been focusing on completing the permit set. We are planning on sending the plans out next week so we can start construction before next year. By working on the permit set, I am completing one of my biggest goals of learning how to navigate the IBC. With that, I am starting to get more comfortable at understanding travel distances and common paths. I’m also learning about ADA requirements. I’m glad I had the opportunity to work on this project on my own. While doing the construction documentation, I am starting to learn that projects are never straightforward and should always prepare for the worst possible outcome.
