Architect fails to check Engineer's drawings with embarrassing result

When the architect doesn’t check the engineer’s drawings this is what happens: The truss is supposed to sit comfortably on the post on the left. Lesson learned: Don’t trust other people to do their job properly. Luckily we were able to rescue the situation with some on-site welding and a minor adjustment to the ceiling detailing. No one will ever know!

Wow! I cound not believe this is happening. 🙂 But just like what you have said. Lesson learned! ‘Don’t trust other people to do their job properly’. We learned from mistakes anyway. Great job keep it up!
