Took a few pictures in the garage of the hotel I stayed at this weekend in Vegas. Throughout the parking structure some EC used flex everywhere coming out several huge switchgears. While not a code violation, I can't believe someone did such a unprofessional installation in a huge complex w/ large power. Each of those flexes are 2".
I'm betting it's MC also. There is big competition to set up power fast and cheap when working on casinos in LV so MC is ran whenever possible. The electricians lovingly call it "Medusa" and it usually gets installed overhead... One of the retrofit jobs I did all but the tele/com lines were in MC. Everything... Never seen so much MC in one place before!!!

I'll be the bad guy here..... Is someone implying this doesn't meet code? If you don't like the installation than you don't like the code, right? So you need to change the code.
What's unprofessional about this installation? I think it looks acceptable and meets code. The EC installed 'fire stopping' and I would say accounted for bend/pulling radii for the run through the ceiling.
Does it look pretty? Does it look like it was done in a workmanship like manner? My subjective opinion says 'yes'. The EC made efforts to secure and route everything in an orderly fashion.
Not sure if the sprinkler head can function? The angle makes it hard to see but if the cable is resting on the sprinkler head then start the finger pointing.
Fortunately, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas." I haven't seen anything like this in my town.
