So we had initially put a screen wall around the mechanical units on the roof, and when we got into the cost analysis with the contractor, it was determined that that screen was about 65 to 70 thousand dollars, and it was starting to push the project over budget, and so we figured well let's do some views and show and be able to analyze and see if we could see the mechanical equipment from the road. So because we use Ravit and we use SketchUp, and we build all of this in 3D models, it's real easy for us to then set up these views and be able to see what it would look like in reality, even though it is all still digital. So these views that we created, started to show us, that not only could you not see the mechanical units, you couldn't even see the screen wall we were trying to put around them.
