With all the abbreviations that were new to me, I can almost hear those around begin to correct what a T.I. is -- “Mo-der-ni-za-tion”. Others may even cringe at past projects of tenant improvements where planning is not always part of the process. Why should we (Architects/Designers, et al.) give above and beyond for such projects? Reasonable question but none one of which I’m referring to. What does a TI have to do with hiking?
