~~Please excuse the mess. Sig under construction~~
the first paragraph contains your answer.... we are talking about 1The project is for my home town, population ~500. The GC lives across the street from me. There are liquidated damages of $1k/day for late completion and he wants to keep things rolling quickly. I am very careful in picking my battles. The money for a change order is hardly worth the paperwork. I emailed the engineering firm and have documented their responses. The 2nd time I emailed them I included specific code references.
They haven't been called on any of these items in the past (in other small, under-trained jurisdictions), and see my efforts for code compliance as an intrusive inconvenience. On the other hand, it is my friends and neighbors who will be servicing the equipment & I care that it is done right. It isn't about money on this one.
I really just wanted to blow a bit of steam and see if anyone knew of an exception to the above items in case I missed something. Thanks again.
disconnect1 here, right? raintight? single phase? and a switch in a bell box?
smile, nod, put them in, mention to the general (your neighbor)
that they were overlooked, but you included them anyway
to make sure there were no hangups at inspection time.
mention to the inspector during the inspection that they were
omitted from the plans by oversight, but you put them in.
smile, nod, and go to the bank...
