I have a question on interpeting the general and specific notes on an electrical drawing. If the general notes call for a #12 insulated ground run to each computer circuit, and the specific notes call out specific marks as computer outlets would that not lead you to believe they were calling for an Isolated Ground for the computers. Now I could be wrong just misinterpeted those notes but I was wondering how many others would assume they were talking IG's in this case.

Sounds like a good assumption to me.

Call the designer to be sure.

Or is it too late?

Yes it is too late just looking to see if anyone would take it the way I did or if I was completely out to lunch on this one.
