    Floor Boxes/Duct

    A customer may soon want a floor box at a desk out in the open. GC is worried about cutting prestressed concrete floor. Does anyone know of a very shallow box/duct that can be cut into concrete floor?

    Can you afford to walk away from the job and tell them where to shove it?

    I partly say that in jest but it sure is a thought when you can get no cooperation.

    I have heard of corner grounded deltas but don't think I've ever seen one. I just think of reading most any article in the code book and it always refers to neutrals as grounded electrode conductors.
