The Contractor shall verify all conditions, data and information as indicated on the
Drawings and in specification sections where electrical work is required.
2.
The electrical Drawings show the required size and points of termination of the conduits,
the number and size of wires, and suggest the proper route for the conduit. It shall be the
responsibility of the Contractor to install the conduits with minimum number of bends to
conform to the structure, avoid obstructions, preserve headroom, keep openings and
passageways clear, and meet all applicable code requirements.

between the Specifications and the Drawings; or between the Electrical Documents and
any Architectural, Mechanical, Plumbing, or Structural Document, the Contractor shall bid
the more expensive or elaborate material, process or procedure and shall call the
discrepancy to the Architects attention. Should the Owner, in its discretion, choose to
implement the less expensive or simpler material, process or procedure after bid opening,
a credit Change Order will be issued to the Contractor.

spaces.
Where otherwise required by NFPA 70.
P.
Stub-up Connections: Extend conduits through concrete floor for connection to freestanding
equipment. Install with an adjustable top or coupling threaded inside for plugs set flush with
finished floor. Extend conductors to equipment with rigid steel conduit; FMC may be used
6 inches (150 mm) above the floor. Install screwdriver-operated, threaded plugs flush with
floor for future equipment connections.
Q.
Flexible Connections: Use maximum of 72 inches (1830 mm) of flexible conduit for recessed
and semirecessed lighting fixtures; for equipment subject to vibration, noise transmission, or
movement; and for all motors. Use LFMC in damp or wet locations. Install separate ground
conductor across flexible connections.

Size concrete bases so expansion anchors will be a minimum of 10 bolt
diameters from the edge of the concrete base.
Concrete Bases for Floor-Mounted Equipment: Use female expansion anchors
and install studs and nuts after equipment is positioned.
Bushings for Floor-Mounted Equipment Anchors: Install to allow for resilient
media between anchor bolt or stud and mounting hole in concrete.
Anchor Bolt Bushing Assemblies for Wall-Mounted Equipment: Install to allow for
resilient media where equipment or equipment-mounting channels are attached
to wall.
Torque bolts and nuts on studs to values recommended by equipment
manufacturer.
Install bracing according to spacings and strengths indicated by approved analysis.
Expansion and Contraction:
Install to allow for thermal movement of braced
components.
Attachment to Structure: If specific attachment is not indicated, anchor bracing to the
structure at flanges of beams, upper truss chords of bar joists, or at concrete members.
Accommodation of Differential Seismic Motion: Make flexible connections in raceways,
cables, wireway, cable trays, and busway where they cross expansion- and seismic-control
joints, where adjacent sections or branches are supported by different structural elements,
and where they terminate at electrical equipment anchored to a different mobile structural
element from the one supporting them.

Testing Agency: Owner will engage a qualified testing and inspection agency to inspect
seismic-control installation for compliance with indicated requirements.
B.
Testing Agency: Engage a qualified testing and inspection agency to inspect seismic-control
