    The dwg also clearly shows running two separate conduits yet the consensus seems to be that requirement should be ignored in favor of running just one. And why does it need to be #12? Maybe you could get by with #14. How far are we willing to go on cheating on the requirements in the specs and the dwgs?

    Because the tags say #12...what is the point to this statement?

    mrlucky74 already stated they were coming from the same panel, according to the schedules

    It also leads me to believe there is a 3/4" minimum spec....

    Just as an in-house company policy, we do not run MC home runs, and we use a hard pipe main trunk for MWBC's with J-boxes and drops to furred walls and up to fixture whips

    MC cable is allowed above hung ceilings.
    We don't run MC homeruns either. I'm talking about pipe from panel to a box close by then MC 150' to another box by the equipment then conduit to the equipment.

    Why would it be against the spec to run MC above a hung ceiling....whether 50' or 200'?

    because if you are going to ignore one thing on the dwgs for your own convenience why can't you ignore anything you don't want to do, especially if it still meets code.

    If your spec allows MC above the ceiling...no problem.
    I was merely guessing...based on the tags on your drawing...EMT is required....jeezus

    I was referring to the idea of running only one conduit instead of the two shown on the drawing.

    #12 is the minimum conductor size in mrluckys jurisdiction.
