That door cable situation should be run through conduit (and 'should' because we shouldn't have an extension cord running to anything always-on, esp in the main entrance hall, because fire code). Lotsa folks been using that outlet area recently to charge their phones during the day, which I suspect may be behind the door system downtimes.

But I'm not volunteering to bottomline that right now, cuz medialab and kitchen need facilitator momentum. :/
Tempted to just call Mike (electrician we've contracted in the past), but I just remembered I ran into Whitney the other week and he mentioned he may have some availability.
Perhaps we can tack it onto the electrical permits we'll need to pull to fix the circuit running to the cafe...
