A sneak peek inside the episode:

“Typically the process would start with design, whether that’s a concept or whether the design has already been done. That would then be reviewed to make sure that whatever’s being built is going to be compliant in the end. So you’re not building something and spending resources, money, time, all those things to end up with something you need to modify at the end. It’s very easy to fix something on the plan, but very hard to have to dig something out of the ground once all the fences are up.”
