Wire run location inside concrete slab - HELP

As NY design engineers we always locate the receptacles on a floor plan with a numeric home run marker indicating the circuit on the panel board. The electricians have always decided where and how to run the wires through floors and walls to get to the load center.

We are now working on a project in the Caribbean and the contractor is asking us to draw the layout where he should put the conduit that will be encased in the concrete slab. Does anyone know a NEC or IBC code citation stating who's is responsible to determine the path route for the wires between the receptacle and panel board.

Thanks>>>>:happysad:

These things are not in any code. They may or may not be in your contract, or the electrician's. You will have to work it out with the electrician and/or client.

"Where do you want me to NOT run the conduit?"
That's the beauty of Revit. Everything is in there and when you go to add a conduit on the electrical drawing it will give you clash warnings if you have a beam, duct, pipe or whatever in the way of your route on any of the other drawings.

You can also take the dimensions off the drawing and make up the bends in the shop.
