    With larger scale projects a simple sketch may not suffice, especially with situations that require town approvals. Thorough site analysis, even surveying may be necessary to deal with existing or future situations. In addition designing to scale allows both designer and client to better picture the anticipated results avoiding costly mistakes and “re-do’s”.

    A scaled plan also results in more accurate measures of length or area, which becomes important when calculating cost estimates that might be based upon length or square footage.
