Anyone have any tips or a quick checklist on things to verify before I print a copy for my employer to review a floor plan concept?

I am not in architectural but mechanical, my thoughts would be along the lines of complying with standards, and/or specific company standards and requirements.

I still find printing a drawing out for self check assists quite a bit, many time I send for review at PDF level check only but a hard copy sometimes highlights items not picked up with PDF settings.
Taking a break away from the project albeit overnight or simply reviewing another project before checking the drawing, can really assist in catching either errors or refinements also. All too often analysis paralysis creeps into a drafters day along with tight deadlines can cause even the most ridiculous or embarrassing mistakes to be made or missed.

The above may be obvious apart from that does the drawing contain all the client or your employer requested? Does it contain duplicate or too much information?

Hope it went well anyways.
