    You just don't see very many pictures of the big jobs on here. I just figure some people might like it because they never get to experience jobs of that size.

    On the HVAC side.....I'd say about 60-70% of it is commercial-ish. A large part of this job is just spiral duct....and your usual TDC/ S & Drive duct. The steamfitters and plumbers have a lot of industrial work in the building.

    I have never seen this much aluminum spiral in my life. I didn't realize how much of it I had to order. It's probably close to 2,000'......plus hundreds of aluminum fittings.
    We have a ton of 10ga stainless oxidizer duct to run on the roof too.
    Lots of neat stuff on this job.

    Yup....carbon welded steel. Needed to be carbon because of the possibility of extremely hot water and other liquids (chemicals) melting a PVC drain. Welded because it limits the possibility of a future leak. Hot water+ leaky fitting+ people under= ouch. All the floor drains in the production areas are welded carbon steel.
    I never knew our plumbers could weld .

    You should see all of the tig welded stainless drains that are under the ground. I was I had pictures of that.

    Edit:
    I forgot to add that some of the floor drains are also welded carbon steel because they are drained into a separate tank in the event that a drum of chemicals was accidentally spilled
