Here is another specification I am getting tired of seeing – “EC shall review branch circuit and feeder lengths for compliance with articles 210.9(a)(1)FPN4 and 215.2(a)(3)FPN2 voltage drop requirements.”
And in the same spec, I found this one – “EC to ensure panels will fit in specified spaces before purchase of equipment.”
For the thirty years I’ve been estimating, these tasks have been the engineers job. Now it’s ours? To me these are just more examples of engineers trying to get away with doing less work, and shifting the burden to electrical contractors.
Let me know what you think, and how you are dealing with this specification.
