Quoting a commercial building with vague specs , and was wondering where do you find the minimium # of receptacles required by any code. With residential you can locate this but with commercial not as easy?

Commercial buildings have receptacles installed on what equipment or needs are required for power. I don't believe that there is a minimum for general purpose receptacles except for corridors? I will have to look it up and get back to you.


Never trust an electrician with no eyebrows!!
