The last thing you wanna do is kind of direct work in your RFI response, you wanna provide a clarification to the design intent or to the contract, you don't actually wanna say, this needs to be put in like this, you know say, this is my intent, and if there's something wrong with your response, this is kind of a conversation, it can go two ways, you know, the question may not be specific enough, you may say, hey I need more information before I can make an appropriate response to this, and it's important that you have that relationship with your contractor and are able to say, hey this isn't quite enough, or, can you go verify this dimension out in the field. At The Beck Group, I work out here in the field three out of five days of the week, so generally when these come in I'm out there with them holding a tape measure, or making sure that whatever they actually said is correct, or verifying it against the contract documents, and then I still make a formal response that does actually modify the contract.
