They were going for the sci-fi look, like the inside of the ship on The Matrix.

Plastic tie-wraps resist corrosion FAR better than steel straps- they won't have problems with those all falling down from rusty hangers! Plus, the interlocking weave appears to be self supporting [Linked Image]

Another case of...."drop ceilings hide a multitude of sins"

OK, supported neatly above the panels, spacing seems to be OK, quick....before the inspector gets here, put the ceiling grid & tiles in!!

Lets face it - we've all seen it somewhere before. The more things change the more they stay the same. All we can do is make sure when we do a job it looks more professional.

On the positive side, those telecom cables look pretty nice. The conduit nipples are well supported and capped with bushings, and the cables are secured with a proper hanger. Too bad the guys running the red cables didn't take the hint.
