So, the best practice is to look at the floor plan. And examine some of the known conditions. Let's take a look at floor plans. Let's go to Project Browser and go to the first floor. And click on that and kind of zoom up into the upper top corner. And you'll notice that some of the known conditions that we have here.

Is we have columns, we have exterior walls which obviously have to hold up the building. And we have grid lines, and, some of these things have, already given us some clue as far as we can work off of these things. We even have windows with mullions, which again is kind of helpful.
