    Bid high. Sometimes a win is not getting the project.

    MEP etc is likely supposed to have been design build by others. The GC then finds subs that can provide that. Whether is a them hiring an engineering firm or a trade with that capability in house.

    Skeptical DB was provided here.
    Skeptical there is an architect.

    Doubt walk-in floor is insulated below the slab. So this should be assumed as a cooler. Freezer modification need to add insulated floor panels.

    Oh you'd be having a heart attack if you seen some of the things I've seen I worked construction building a plant on the instrumentation side and they were trying to cut costs so they decided to get bolts that you can barely put half a thread on with the nut keep in mind these are holding metal trays that have tubing going through it that vibrates a lot and that's the least of the issues that that place

    2:50 in 7 years of being a cook, i finally have seen everything.

    Cook: "Hey where do these pots and colander go?"
    KM: "Just throw em on top of the walk-in"

    Following day:

    KM: "Where the fuckin hell are the damn pots?"

  4. Cassiopeia Clark says:

    To everyone looking for an update, it doesn't look like there were any new restaurants that opened in that mall recently. There is one slated "Coming Soon" but it hasn't opened yet. I live near there and know the area where this was filmed quite well so I stopped by and checked it out on my way to do some shopping.

  5. DreamTheory says:

    going behind someone who has said one thing only to have to go "um actually no" is not fun. it ussually it takes someone of authority looking at it going ha no that they realize you told the truth.

  6. Matthew W says:

    These guys are so over their heads its not even funny, everyone wants to open a restaurant, you have to follow the building, health and fire code and have a contractor that knows what they're doing

  7. Talinthis says:

    uhm yeah nobody is going to be working in that "office" if they dont rip out that transformer and move it. Might as well just scrap the idea right now. It is definitely not safe with the noise pollution and i dont even think they could legally make it an office as OHS at least in canada, requires that a space not have noise that could disrupt concentration, conversations, or other necessary tasks and you definitely need hearing protection if someone was in there all day every day.

  8. Tye Heyborne says:

    Can't tell you how often we get people wanting to reuse existing equipment that is so far from code lol sometimes it's like pulling teeth trying to upgrade and redo runs and duct work

  9. Volker H says:

    Welcome to the US, land of the free and great, where you can pretend to be a professional and do what ever what you want without any training and it's all rotten below the shiny cover

  10. Stormspark says:

    It sounds like someone wants to open a restaurant and got in WAY over their head. But honesty/upfront disclosure is never something to be ashamed of. It sounds like they were wanting to cut corners and just have the cheapest job possible, and that's not something I'd want to do in any line of work.

  11. Nighthawke70 says:

    This is a complete disaster for the tenant wanting to open a restaurant there. I can see the previous Asian restaurant operators realized they had a slow-rolling disaster on their hands, so they (literally) cut and run. I'm surprised they left their utensils up in the 2nd ceiling like that. That could be considered a code violation right there. But overall, the current operator has at least 50-75 grand in rework to do before the place could open and operate properly.

  12. Mutleytech says:

    There is absolutely no way that room can be used as an office PERIOD! OSHA requires 36 inches clearance from any electrical panel to begin. The whole thing is a cluster and all that crap should've been ripped out and start over as it would be less expensive in the long run. Unbelievable but I believe it you bet.

  13. Sven Weihusen says:

    Liked this video. And I personally think it was the right thing to do. They will certainly at least contact someone else and now know what to ask him if he is suggesting to do it quick and dirty. These things might not get get you this job but may get you a lot of jobs in the long run.
    People remember competence and even if someone higher up decides to go the cheap way they will remember when it comes up to bite them later.

    Dude, Chris you shouldn't feel bad about sharing your thoughts with the customer. I understand the reason why you feel like you shot yourself in the foot by sharing too much, but I wouldn't sweat it. You rule Chris. Thanks for making these videos.

  15. StarHelix says:

    As a 16yr electrician I love your videos and like learning about another trade. And you were dead on about the step down transformer in that office. The heat and loud vibration are indicative of a transformer at the end of its life. That thing is on its last leg and will need to be replaced. Keep up the great work and great videos brother.
