Consider the crucial difference between “let’s eat, grandma,” and “let’s eat grandma"

Consider the crucial difference between “let’s eat, grandma,” and “let’s eat grandma.” The first is a friendly invitation to dinner; the second, an ominous threat to Nana.

This hyperbolic illustration of proper punctuation is also a cautionary tale about attention to detail. In our field, the accuracy of construction documents can mean the difference between a project’s success or failure. SUPERSTRUCTURES’ practice incorporates a number of measures to guard against small errors that can lead to big problems.

Rather than relying on wordy written specifications that are ripe for misunderstanding, we draw every detail to help ensure accurate execution of our restoration plans and minimize change orders.

Our strategic planning and execution of probes and non-destructive testing methods helps pinpoint issues early, heading off costly surprises for our clients down the line. Every project—while it may fit a specific type—is a little different, and we don’t take the details for granted.

In written communications, small details like comma placement and well-meaning typos can make all the difference in conveying a writer’s intent. There’s actually a resume-writing service called Let’s Eat, Grandma. SUPERSTRUCTURES’ name is less whimsical, but our dedication to accuracy in building envelope investigation, non-destructive testing, restoration design, and construction administration is deadly serious.
