Communication via Hand Sketches

So how do we communicate as engineers..? we spend a lot of time on phones talking, emails writing as we sit behind a desk in our office.  But in order to sort out a problem or to develop a solution, nothing beats sitting down with an other person and sketching up ideas and solutions on paper.

@ Build Collective - hand sketching is encouraged, as it really helps to communicate between engineer and technician in house as well as with engineer and architect (and client).

Sketches help clients understand structural solution, and aids builders in the delivery of building projects.
