Do you get bored working at the same place for 2 1/2 years? Longest stretch I've done on one job was 18 months, but we had some other service work we did at the same time. I was getting pretty sick of walking in the doors to that place at month 16 though.

Jesus!
Coil springs under transformers look funny but I'm sure there effective for transformer buzz vibration.
Well everything we do is funny on this project its a funny place
every thing that vibrates must have a loop 180 degrees flex .

There cant be any physical connection on any dimmer with conduit .

All switchboards are on vibration pads .

Every disconnect or panel are hung with vibration supports .

I could go on but they don't want any noise no sound transmission complete elimination the electrical rooms are padded when we get done with 2 inches of sound board .

Jesus. They should've just made it easy on you guys and let you build all the equipment normally inside a sound-proof electrical room. :laughing:

Well its the same as motor starter or a freq drive anything that has a coil or a transformer or a relay that's anything that hums must be mounted on mason vibration pads or hangers.
Conduit is on rubber hangers and its flex with a S or a U shaped type connection to equipment .

These folks are unbelievable but there sound engineers and they know it all .
Best part is if you move bump or shove any transformer in this building while its hot you might break the termination bus as they move easy on springs .
I personally think there idiots but what do I know and its extra money our tax dollars could have saved.:thumbup:

Very nice work. Attention to detail really shines.
Would have loved to have seen a few pics of the 4k amp main section before you put the covers on. I'm sure your top men made it work of art.

Well we don't have time to get bored most of my jobs are 2 years plus and a few have been longer in phases .
We are always in run for the roses mode from start to finish non stop were 100 to 150 electricians on one project . You keep them busy or find another place to work here . :thumbsup:

Great work. It's nice to see someone taking the time to make their work look great. Seems too often foremen are in such a rush to get things done they don't want you to take the time to make it look good. But, once you do the job fast they complain it doesn't look good.I think you almost have to be OCD to be a good electrician. You have to figure in value added of course.
