I continued working on casework this week and laying out the detail sheet. I learned about doing elevation call-outs. My challenge this week was doing the custom desks for the reception area in the media room and the main office’s desk.  On Wednesday I went on a site visit for an office upfit. The suite was within an old building that had been retrofitted 15 years ago and is up to LEED standards.  The suite has a high ceiling height and the owner wanted a mezzanine to place more offices within the space.  A firm in New York had come up with the plans, but Pinnacle is the local architect to handle permitting. The New York firm has never visited the space. We had to field verify where the ducts were and figure out how they would interfere with the mezzanine placement. The sprinkler system will also likely be an issue.
