Lesson Learned/Best Practice
Herman Miller casework power boxes have common raceways for different types of power (normal and emergency). Additional conduit was run inside the manufactured casework for the different power. This was done in hospital grade flexible conduit because there is not enough room for rigid conduit inside the casework. Power requirements were not coordinated from Herman Miller.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
Coordinate power box uses with Herman Miller prior to issuing casework drawings so it can be manufactured with the final use in mind. Prep prefabricated casework with the needed electrical rough-in.
