Owen’s Standards, Knowledge, and Experience Through our extensive review and design work, Owen has become intimately familiar with design standards, document standards, and our own “lessons learned” review guide. We also maintain and use our own checklist of items derived from our use of “Common Problems” check system for our constructability review experience. Our previous review work has provided us the opportunity to see and evaluate many different architects’ methodologies and solutions to problematic code compliance design and detailing, such as rated assembly wall ceiling connections and constructable steel fire-proofing detailing. We bring this experience to our constructability reviews to offer suggestions to conditions based on similar experience.
e-PlanReview® is environmentally friendly, with a goal to not only to save the cost and to speed up the plan check process, but also to dramatically cut back, if not eliminate paper prints and the transportation and car emissions associated with the old system. Program Highlights: • Online mark-ups of drawings linked to comments • Standard Comment(s) Database • Streamlined / concurrent team collaboration • View / reports sorted by multiple parameters • Reduces storage space needs • Eliminates paper, printing, inks, and delivery costs Please visit e-PlanReview® http://www.eplanreview.com
