I just woke up from a dream about a so-called DBMO tender. In order for the client to get a better performance, this type of contract involves not just the design but also the maintenance of the project. The contractor, in addition to erecting the building also has to provide toilet paper and coffee for a 25 year time frame. The hallucination was about the menu of one of the required restaurants. According to the program of demands we did not provide enough red pepper icons in the side line. How could we rescue the project? What if we placed some extra peppers on the children’s menu?
