Where the Contractor is not certain about the method of installation, he shall ask the Architect
for further installation details. Lack of details, not requested, will not be an excuse for improper
installation.
When a color or other condition for a product is specified to be determined by the architect, the
submittal for that item shall be clearly marked with the available options. (Do not select a color
or other condition in the submittal.) The architect shall be specifically asked by the contractor to
provide the required information, and that product shall not be ordered prior to obtaining such
information.
LAWS, CODES, AND PERMITS
The latest accepted edition of the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70), National Fire Alarm
Code (NFPA 72), and all State building codes shall be considered a part of these specifications,
and pertinent articles will not be repeated herein. These codes establish the minimum acceptable
criteria where more stringent requirements have not been defined in these specifications and/or
drawings.
This Contractor shall give notice to the proper authorities in ample time for the work to be
inspected and approved as it progresses, and no work shall be concealed until inspected and
approved by authorized inspectors. If the plans or these specifications in any way conflict with
the referenced codes, these latter are to be followed, without expense to the Owner, but the
Architect shall be notified of this condition and approval secured before changes are made.
No work shall be concealed until approved by the Architect.
The contractor shall assure that he does not install electrical equipment including raceways in or
through areas restricted by the international building code including elevator shafts and stairs.

Panelboard Nameplates: Label each panelboard with engraved metal or laminated-plastic
nameplate mounted with corrosion-resistant screws.
Circuit Directory: Create a directory to indicate installed circuit loads after balancing panelboard
loads. Obtain approval before installing. Use a computer or typewriter to create directory;
handwritten directories are not acceptable.
FIELD QUALITY CONTROL
Testing and Inspection: After installing panelboards and after electrical circuitry has been
energized, demonstrate product capability and compliance with requirements.
Balancing Loads: After Substantial Completion, but not more than 60 days after Final
Acceptance, measure load balancing and make circuit changes as follows:
1. Measure as directed during period of normal system loading.
2. Perform load-balancing circuit changes outside normal occupancy/working schedule of
the facility and at time directed. Avoid disrupting critical 24-hour services such as fax
machines and on-line data-processing, computing, transmitting, and receiving
equipment.
3. After circuit changes, recheck loads during normal load period. Record all load readings
before and after changes and submit test records.
4. Tolerance: Difference exceeding 20 percent between phase loads, within a panelboard,
is not acceptable. Rebalance and recheck as necessary to meet this minimum
requirement.
