Hello everyone,
I am currently working on a project in Africa (school buildings) where my company is supervising the contractor's work. For this project, it is required for the contractor to bring it's own execution plans. Before starting the construction, they have to hire another engineering firm to design and produce the execution plans. Since we have already designed for the project during the design process, I believe the contractor could just use our plans. But apparently this is how an engineering project is always handled in this country. From your experience, do the contractor use the plans made by the consulting firm during the design process, or do they bring their own plans?

Hello everyone,

I'm having troubles with my labels in Civil 3D. When I create my profile view for a profile, the Horizontal and Vertical Axis labels appear to be extremely small when I view them under "Model" tab. At first, they seem to not appear at all, but when I zoom I see them. It is the same thing for my Alignment labels too. They appear fine when I switch onto the "Layout" tab. Under the "Model" tab, when I increase the text height in the Label properties, it doesn't make any difference. It would be very helpful if somehow I could see those Labels while designing. What should I do?

Introduction
My friends call me Bouba. I would describe myself as a third culture kid. I was born in Mali, but I spent most of my life living in different countries.
I have an engineering degree from Virginia Tech and looking participate in the development of renewable energies in West Africa. As a proud geek, I have great interests in science and technologies. I'm a heavy reader and also enjoy travelling to new place and meeting new people. I have this very ambitious goal to set foot in all of the countries in the world (ok maybe half) during my lifetime (yep even Antarctica!)
Bragging rights
I speak 4 languages, I have lived in 6 different countries, and have been in about 20 so far.

Great place to hang out, with friends or with a date. The club/bar inside is very small and makes you feel very comfortable. It's not too crowded. The setting is also really nice. If you're more in the mood to chill, you can just stay at the restaurant outside in the garden, to enjoy their delicious food and the fresh air.
