Here's some photos from my current job... An office renovation for new tenants.

Sub panel... Note the really big KO at the bottom... And it's a 3R indoors...

Switch and receptacle for Furnace / Air Handler. It's brand new.

Tight shot of HVAC receptacle. Again, it's brand new. Installed by the HVAC contractor, not by me!

Enjoy!

That panel is a beautiful thing!
Least it's Sq D
Could be that the big knockout was to prevent overheating if they had 1 conductor coming in each of the factory KO's????

How the he** do you find all these beauties??

I know that "when you smile, the whole world smiles at you". But I didn't think that enclosures could smile! [Linked Image]

Think of it as job security. It seems like most of your work is replacing stuff that hackers put in.

If Virgil thinks like I do, he is bemoaning the fact that someone has already paid for this once and they expected it to be done right.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

Sorry folks, this thread got lost in the fray!

Redsy, LOL! Yes, it's a happy load center...

Scotts, Tom has it right, it's very frustrating and sometimes I look like I'm just trying to drum up business. Fortunately (or unfortunately?) this is a lawyer's office, I think I can convince him of my liability concerns.

In this particular town, a City Building Inspector inspects the work, but he really doesn't know what to look for and probably hasn't been given the oportunity to see it anyway. No "real" electrical inspectors have seen this either and they only inspect new services.
