Our Philosophy

You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.
Ayn Rand

I’m not a genius. I’m just a tremendous bundle of experience.
Richard Buckminster Fuller

The reality of what is (and isn’t) in construction documents can bite. Experienced proofreaders provide reality checks instead.
