Commercial zoning and steel framing have nothing to do with whether using romex is allowed or not unless there are local amends to the nec in that area.Depends on what the area is classified as. If this is someone running it out of a home ok, but most likely if its a commercially zoned building with steel framing then MC or conduit.

Most likely it is allowable. Most likely I would use another method.
Johnpbeau said:Can you use romex to wire a brewery?[/QUOTE. Depending on the size and occupancy of it , I would say maybe parts o it can be wired in NM , but certainly not all of it . Assuming it's a new facility or a remodel , you'd have to be working off of engineered and approved drawings with spec.'s outlining the wiring methods that are allowed for that particular job . Nobody bids a brewery flying by the seat of their pants , hoping they can use Romex , or at least anyone that wants to stay in business past that job , lol ! I've never seen new Romex being installed in My past 20 years in commercial and industrial , unless it was for temporary power and lighting . That doesn't mean it isn't legal , but it's never spec.'d .
