Tonight will be a quick one as I’m pretty buried, but I thought this post would be a good time to highlight what items are on our various pre-phase checklists.
Before there can be building there are numerous steps that must be completed. These are what we call pre-phase elements. Pre-phase one is obviously the first element and that is what we will discuss in this post. This is just my first stab at it. I’m sure there will be revisions/additions/subtractions, etc. You’ll note that there no time estimates for each task. We aren’t comfortable yet making those kinds of guesses. At some point though, we’ll have to make those estimates.
