Do you turn over a Scope of work to your Drafting Team whether in house or Outsourced?
I am Curious how many Millwork Shops just dump a set or Architectural drawings and say do all the casework and Millwork, and how many set up a project with a scope of work and a broke out set of drawings to get their Drafting team rolling?
Reason for the Question is we get some new clients that have no idea what a scope of work is and will say do all of the casework and millwork only later to find we have created Shop Drawings for area not even in the clients scope(Ugh).

An Architectural Woodwork Institute [AWI] LinkedIn Member asked “Should you start Building Millwork and Casework before Submitting a Millwork Shop Drawing, Also he wanted to know if Millwork Shops use Millwork Shop Drawing Services. (This is our Cents) I believe it depends on the type of project and what your definition of Starting a project is.
We Do Millwork Shop Drawings For some High end Residential Wood Working Clients that will pay for a shop drawing out of pocket just to try and land the projects and at times even create mock ups. Now in terms of larger Commercial Millwork Projects I agree with Don Submit Shop drawings only After receiving a contract or a letter of intent. As far as starting, Cabinet and Millwork Shops start investing time from square one doing due diligence and such but never let Things hit the shop floor without an Approved Shop Drawing. As for Drafting Subcontracting and Shop Drawing Outsourcing I believe we have seen a pretty big push into the age of Millwork Shops using Millwork Shop Drawing Services. I also feel that this is a result of the economic down turn that many of us have experienced in the last decade and the subsequent slow return to an economy where people are spending. in Short if a Millwork shop had a 5 man Design & Engineering team before the down turn and let 4 of them go. Just because they are experiencing what they feel maybe an upward moving anomaly in the market with some increased sales. Does not mean that Millwork shop wants to run out and Hire 4 guys back and Pay for all of the Benefits payroll tax and insurance. So that millwork shop is more likely to hire a Millwork Shop Drawing service to expand their already efficient one man Design & Engineering team.
