Here on Camp Lejeune, the base telephone guy wants all telecommunication runs (secure Internet, non secure internet, phone, etc. ) in 1 1/4 " conduit, no more than 180 degrees of bend between pull points, no pull boxes used to change the direction of the run.
I guess the idea is to make it easier to change, add or eliminate different runs as needed. I think it's really just a power trip. This douche bag made us tear out 3" sleeves in block and make them 4" literally on a whim. This dude is the man every jerk inspector hopes to be.
A few years ago we got paid to install 2" rigid with xp enclosures etc for FA and a separate for Data to a govt building. later, they asked us to pull in the FA cause the base alarm guy said it was gonna be too hard for him to pull (can't recall, but I may have maxed it at 360). Anyhow, I went out there to pull in, you guessed it, a pair of #12s. Oh lawdy, why you makes me works so hard.
