    Are the 30-45 amps minimum circuit ampacities or maximum OCPD? If so, maybe your competitiors sized the conductors based on the minimum ampacities. Just throwing it out there.

    I had days that I was glad I was the SECOND lowest bidder!

    The scary part is when the General calls up 10 minutes before the bid goes into a city project, and asks, can you bond!

    The bond ask is the tell you have left too much money on the table.

    Instead of trying to run the AC circuits as you described, why not just put an AC panel on the roof and then feed them from there?
    I can build anything you want if you draw a picture of it on the back of a big enough check.

    There's no substitute for hard work....but that doesn't mean I'm going to give up trying to find one.
