Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Due to penetrations not being fire caulked as they were being roughed-in, some penetration became blocked by ductwork and fire caulking was missed or had to be re-caulked.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Fire caulk all penetrations as they are made instead of at the end of the rough-in stage.
