November Meeting Recap:

Gary Glide presented a great overview of the changes DSA has incorporated. His 30 years of experience provided “ hands on”  information to our members. The presentation  generated questions not only from the architects and specifiers in the audience, but was also very eye opening for vendors to understand the role DSA plays and how that effects the timing of projects. With DSA concentrating on only three segments of the documents it will free up valuable time with the inspectors and save money not dealing with incidental change orders.
