In relation to your article "Good Morning, Vietnam" (5 September, pages 38-41), I would like to point out that many outsource companies are trying to produce information without knowledge or experience of the UK.
Architects and designers in the UK are rightly sceptical about the quality and technical expertise of much outsourcing documentation.

My company, CADnet, has been producing production documentation (from Perth in Australia) for UK architects and interior designers for three years, using staff with experience of the UK and with knowledge of UK building practice and construction methods. With technology today, it is easy to keep in touch with the UK marketplace trends, standards and regulations changes.

Outsourcing does work, but for it to do so it is necessary for staff to have worked within the UK market and gained the knowledge and experience base to be confident of producing the work remotely.
