Typically drafting accounts for 5-8% of the total cost of a project but influences as much as 90% of the cost. Combine that with the massive costs that can be incurred in rectifying problems caused by inaccurate drawings and it’s easy to see why investing a little more in the quality of the drafting makes commercial sense.
At Cadgile we allow 15% on all jobs to complete our internal 3 tier checking process. We are sometimes asked is this worth it? In our view you can’t afford not to do it. The checking process is an integral part of the Cadgile way to ensure our clients receive accurate drawings, on time, every time. And in the end that helps make the project as cost effective as possible.
