I brought up an experience of mine on another site, and got immediatly lambasted for my thoughts. I have been on projects (new residential homes) where I've never had any face to face contact with any human being regarding my part of the project. My involvement (electrical) was initiated by a phone call or fax, paperwork was exchanged by Email or US mail, I ruffed on the appointed days, finished out on the appointed days, sent bills at the proper times, and got checks in the mail. This has happened over time with several builders on several projects, and I called it a "model of efficiency". I got shot down because others called it the wrong way to run a project, adding that you should always have "communication". While I could have made a cell phone call or got someone at the site if I felt compelled to do so, there was never a need. I felt that this was a good model because no problems ever came up that couldn't be resolved in the field by the installer, and the prints and initial telephone instructions were concise. While this is an exceptional situation, it's happened to me quite a number of times. Thoughts?
