I'm in harrisburg PA.Remodeling 3 story steel frame Bld. contractor wants to use romex. There is a non plenum drop cieling.
My understanding is you can't have any exposed romex in a drop cieling,plenum or not.Is this correct? Harrisburg is on 93 code. I want to use MC,don't want romex touching any steel.

Under the 93 NEC you would be fine, as long as the building is not a; Place of Assembly, Commercial Garage, Theatre, or Motion Picture Studio.

I don't see a problem with NM touching building steel.

Not sure about '93 Code, but I think the plenum restriction for NM was there.
