When we're checking the shop drawings, and working with our consultants on looking at the shop drawings, there are concerns and we did uncover an issue with the elevators and one of the beams on this project, and it was noticed that the elevator shaft was drawn a certain size because of the elevator but when we got the shop drawings back for the elevators, we realized that there was about a half inch discrepancy of what was needed for the elevator and where we had a beam that was cutting through. So there had to be some last minute scrambles of making sure that A, we could make the elevator work in the space that we had provided, but in fact we couldn't, we had to move the beam so we had to go back and work with the fabricator to see if we could move the beam about a half inch, or an inch I guess, to make sure that we had that clearance. They had to go back and talk to their detailers and so it was about a three, four day process but eventually everybody agreed that we could move the beam about an inch, and it didn't affect any of the elevators or any of those things.
