As a certified master ABCS for Johnson Controls, Inc. the world leader in HVAC and controls. I am tired of you making up lies about there treatment. They are number 1 and your very jealous. The NAE is one of the most powerful creations in years. If your not competent to install or program it, go back to installing T87's
If your Project Manual 1 includes 'General Conditions of the Contract for Construction', AIA doc A201/CMa, review these sections:
6.1 'Owner's Right To Perform Construction..' (operations)
8.3 'Delays And Extensions Of Time'
9.3 'Applications For Payment' (9.3.3 is what controlgeek is speaking of.)
12.2 'Correction Of Work'
13.3 'Written Notice'
13.5 'Tests And Inspections'
14.2 'Termination By The Owner For Cause'
If your Manual 1 doesn't use the mentioned AIA, the wording/headings will be in the 'General Conditions of the Contract for Construction' somewhere.
You know all this back and forth banter isn't getting this taking care ot this customer. Time for some of the JCI employees to step up to the plate and make this situation right. As a controls technician, I feel the most important thing is we get this school situation corrected. When a situation like this in one of the branches happens, then it tends to make the whole company look bad. So instead of typing responses to the problem, do something about it. Makle your company proud!!!!!!!!!!!! Then you can say your the leader of the industry.

If the job is still in progress and not complete, then you don't own it yet. Once the job is complete, then you can do what you want. This is a straight forward contractual issue. When you are ready to sign off, then make them show you that everything works correctly. Once they prove everything is correct then you can request the IP address.
Here's the deal. They can claim that until the job is complete, you don't have access rights. This goes for any manufacturer/contractor.
After I wrote this, it seems like all sorts of daggers were being thrown, and I think some were at me. If you look at what I was saying, I was just saying that If the job is still in progress and not complete etc.
Now Chet is saying that the job is complete and they have removed the NAE off his network. If this is the case, then they should put it back on.
Also, check the drawings and look at the details page on the NAE. You'll might find that they wrote "internet or DSL connection provided by others or owner". If that's the case then you have a great leg to stand on.
So instead of typing responses to the problem, do something about it.
I believe the gentleman has been receiving help with his issues already, along with the assorted chaff that is to be expected on any public forums like this one.
As a matter of fact, if you check out the links below to all of his threads, it seems that he has been getting one hell of a lot of good info, and assistance for someone who then decides to throw so many stones about.
Sound to me like xwench, freddy krueger, twisted pear, simsdee and alray-hal all would love the opportunity to work for the world leader in facility automation. But I do not think Johnson Controls, Inc. would be interested in any of you.
I should of not directed this to all JCI employees. I have some good friends that work for JCI. It was direct at all the negative commentors whether they worked for JCI or not. x-Wrenchturner I especially apologize to you because you have always had positive feedback
