While on a site observation in Grand Island, NY, I noticed this transformer (See attached photos). The space was vacated in April of 2003, and I was there to verify existing conditions of the electrical and mechanical systems for a future tenant.
Needless to say, a few things will have to be fixed.
I am an Electrical Engineering grad from the University of North Dakota with two years in the design/consulting field.
I was a three year electrical apprentice before and during my high school and college days. I am now an EIT, for Dunham Associates in Bloomington, MN.
I have sent these pictures around to other engineers (not only electrical, but structural and mechanical also).
Its unbelievable that a contractor would actually do this.
I thought you might enjoy (or cringe) at these pictures.
