A lot of designers tend to look at and maybe shy away from some construction estimates and things like that, but there are a lot of really good benefits and really good values, and really important uses of getting construction estimates throughout the design process so that we can hopefully design in a manner that's appropriate to what's good for the owner, what the client and owner needs, and hopefully can validate the construction ultimately of the building. At the end of the day, we want everyone to be on the same page. So we want the owner to be on the same page with all of their financing partners, whomever the contractor is when they're included within the process aligned with their means of making it.
