I am working a job as a contractor in a house that is being re constructed from the bottom up. In the mechanical room there is a gas hot water heater that is sitting directly under a large gray plastic junction box 12"x12"x12" approx. the kind you have to cut you own access holes per circuit.
I'm questioning the location of that junction box as being to code and came here to ask for some professional opinions.. The box hangs down from the ceiling and is NOT buried inside it with just a cover showing. The distance between the HWH and the box is approx 16 to 18 inches.
Any facts and opinions appreciated

There is no requirement for any clearance between a water heater and a junction box.
Might I suggest you contact your plumber and electrician for further assistance.
