Yeah, the biggest stuff goes in first. I always hated it when the GC's call me before the plumber or the tin knocker is done (or even started). I'm pretty good, but I don't have ESP. Drain pipe is not bendy, and the ductwork guys seldom have options. Our wire can go anywhere, so we've got all the options in the world. We rightfully should go last. The drawback is that this puts us on the critical path. If we get behind, that holds up the insulators and the cover-up inspections, and the drywallers. If you get a GC off his critical path, you're very likely to never work for him or her again.
