Consulting engineer, Enhanse

the tips on planning, process, organization of the team and quality control are all good rules to live by in EBOM. I have worked on three so far and find that they tend to stretch over many months (normally because building owners aren't staffed to do their job + add LEED EBOM). These tips will help keep the team from doing re-work, and should help maintain momentum (which is easy to loose as weeks and weeks pass).
