FB = Facebook. This is part of the first floor of MPK 62

The yellow is masking tape with conduit ID numbers from BIM modeling.

I really miss the days when we'd get prints saying put 2 circuits over here, put 3 circuits over there and throw in a couple general use circuits for the janitor... Whoever is doing our prints either has a bizarre sense of humor or is just out of college and has no idea how phasing and circuit numbers in a panel line up, among other things. There's too much ambiguous info on prints now which ends up confusing a lot of people. Then there's the fact that our BIM never seems to match other trades so we end up in each others way anyways.

Jesus, Randy!!
You have to come in here and show us all up, don't you? grin
I like that pipe at the top of the picture.
Is this just for the people at FB or is it going to be an actual restaurant?
It'd be nice to see this once it's finished.
Top marks, mate!

It's just for FB employees. The building we did next door has a similar kitchen that could feed half the SF Bay area at one time. We essentially finished our kitchen right before the "rona hit with everyone else still in troubleshoot mode grin Both buildings are 8 floors with a bunch of open office space, meeting rooms, "Cozy rooms" and "Comfy rooms whistle 2nd floor has 2 big presentation rooms (each with a 292" Samsung "Wall" OLED screen that had to be drug in through a removed window from a crane lift and a Preston deck. crazy ) 3rd floor is mostly servers IIRC. 8th floor has a huge balcony that would be a hit for any party.

As our crew was essentially finished and when we all became "essential", we ended up at the big pharma project in South San Francisco. (Which Oyster Point appears to be quickly becoming the real estate of choice for pharma labs.) Lots of clean rooms, vivariums and general lab spaces along with -80°C freezers that would be perfect for chilling a 12 pack in a hurry! grin This is the 4th big pharma job I've done on the same street over here.

My God!, why on earth do you ever need to have a screen of THAT size?
If that is on the diagonal, it's like 7.5 metres across, what do they use to drive such a screen?

Sounds like you're pretty busy, mate, the only way to be.

They had the phone exploding, and to make it worse, exploding washers so they earned it.

We lost count of how many caught fire/ exploded over here in NZ, there were just so many.
And that was AFTER the recall was supposedly over........ whistle
