These Projects Don't Just Happen: Budgeting

These Projects Don't Just Happen: Budgeting

Sometimes in my business something just frustrates me so I end up writing a blog post about it. This can be a good thing and a bad thing, not every post is published, but this topic is so unbelievably common that no matter how many times I write about it, talk about it, warn clients, or turn away project opportunities, it's the one that sticks out like a sore thumb.

JITTY _ A linking of two areas of a village. #CKID

A "Jitty" is a narrow pathway between two areas of a village. In this example, it is a connection (or back laneway) between Granville Street and Seymour Street near our office. I think it aptly describes what a back alley really is in a downtown core.

Yes, it's dirty, has recycling and trash bins, isn't always the safest idea to use as a passage in typical Vancouver fashion, but I prefer to think of alleys, lanes, and jitties, as the backbone of architecture and their services or supply.
