I just ran across this picture on my computer that someone sent me a while back of a local building project. This was not one of my company's projects so I don't know much about it but think it is a rather impressive amount of under floor conduit for one building.

If it doesn't come out in the right place you've got big problems!

Looks somewhat like some steel mills of yester-year except we used RMC, this looks to be EMT.
If so, is corrosion protection to be applied? 358.10(B).

Do question 310.15(B)(2)(b). Hard to tell from this picture.

Nothing like a well done rigid conduit installation, everything is so neatly done.

Is there any issue with the diminished strength of the structure due to the conduits displacing what would otherwise be concrete?
