sorry I couldnt save the pics during the pipe laying while doing the slab(decking) but all is not lost,u can ask me anything you need to know about the pipe installation during the decking stage.

meanwhile here are pictures for the knockout boxes and the d-board which is the mainframe of electricity distribution in the building.

the kind of conduit pipe used is the one called: dignity pipes.I choose them because of their quality and durability even when repairs are been carried out on them they still last up to their promised durations and they can with stand any cement conditions.

copplers are being used at the junctions(bends) to ease the movement of wires through them.

Just a quick observation.

1) Why does you conduit look like it was installed by a legally blind person, very few straight lines?

2) Could you snap a straight line and cut the block with a circular saw that has concrete blade?

3) How do you stop the junction boxes from sinking back into the walls and maintain the proper flush to the finished wall?

I'm approaching this stage quickly so maybe I'll experience the Nigerian aspect.

well I will take the first question as a compliment at least its not every blind person that could do wiring but the pipe doesn't have to be 90° straight though but the phishing tape will take the wire through them,hope that ans u.

to ur 2nd question,i don't see how cutting through with a straight line is related to the task at hand,don't forget the aim is to hide the conduit wiring not expose them.when all is done,trust me you can hardly predict where the pipes passes through after being rendered.

to the third question,the hole in the wall is dug according to the size of the junction box or even smaller and the box is fixed in with force so the tightness will hold it in place the the little excess spaces are then filled with mortar.

I would never hire you based on your lack of attention to detail.

Good day.

the bends you see are the ones passing through beams and the ones with more than one pipe links and if there happens to be a stirrup on the straight line,you have to go around it,I though with the previous ans you could be savvy enough to see that,I'm not posting for you to hire me,good day

its brick breaking and you don't expect to see something neat,not yet,don't forget that hollow blocks have inner partitions and breaking through doesn't reveal neat workings yet,as you follow the thread you will start to feel the vibe,thanks

I'm savvy enough to understand that you lack professional pride in your workmanship. That much I'm certain off.

You can go around hard stops in a more coordinated manner. What you are doing now shows professional laziness.

I still won't hire you or recommend you.

PS: you indeed solicited for work from me via your signature (might need to add a disclaimer). Also what school gave you the engineer title? You're an electrician at best, maybe even a contractor but most likely not an engineer.
