Many offices ban nixers, with good reason. Check first does yours. If it does, consider not doing this job. If it doesn’t, you may find they are willing to take the job “under their wing”, perhaps at a small premium. If you are doing nixers you are probably not doing your job properly and your employer will find out. Mind you, Frank L. Wright had half of Oak Park built before Sullivan noticed and it didn’t seem to do him any harm (in the long term). Do NOTHING without PI.
Perhaps a little excessive, but this is good advice. If you do proceed, be aware that you are exposing yourself to a certain amount of risk in the event of major flaws being exposed in the design.
In my limited number of nixers, extensions and houses to planning mostly, i have always included “Planning Drawings only, not to be used for construction, check all dimensions on site”. If somebody uses them for construction after that it’s not my business. If somebody else chooses to sign off that constructed building that’s also not my business.
