These pictures are of a CICU Hospital project, the conduits are colored to match conduits and J boxes above the ceiling and within the walls, they represent Normal, Critical, Life Safety, and Equipment branches. We have been doing this in Hospitals and some other facilities for 20 years or more. It makes maintenance and up-fits much easier.

Anyways the crew who did this project did an excellent job IMO, even though I may be bragging on them. (They do work for me [Linked Image])

BTW, the work above the suspended ceilings is just as nice. [Linked Image]

Now that is impressive. Both in concept and in execution. You have a right to be proud of them and they should be proud of their work.

In a case like this it's truly a shame to put the suspended ceiling in [Linked Image]

Kudos Roger!
Looks like the type of work I am often accused of over building. (By the boss, as its being done.) But anything less, IMO is not a complete install. (By the time its done, the boss comes in and gets kinda weepy with pride looking at it.)

Its also the type of work that if someone comes in to add to it, they feel the need to adhere to the same quality, and standard. To do otherwise would make them look inferior.

As for labeling conduit, they make some stickers for that type of thing. But probably would not be half as visable as the paint, and cost 4X's as much.

Anyway, darn nice work!

I'm not so sure this is a quality installation.....There's a little bit of white overspray on the strut in the last photo. .....Sorry couldn't resist.

Why can't every installation look like this. Neat. Well lighted. Room for future stuff on the strut.

Very very very nice.

RSlater,
