So does this mean that Sudo can't complete it's electrical upgrades until
CCL does theirs, for example?

Having discussed the permit process at length with David and Hol, we came
to the conclusion that coordinating our efforts makes the most sense. This
will save permitting costs and not aggravate the inspector, who otherwise
will need to plan a visit for every piece-wise permit. Electrical plans
should be documented to all extent possible. This means drawings of what is
to be removed and what will need to be installed. The drawings are not any
consequence to the city nor inspector, however, they are very useful for
in-house coordination and contractor bid process.
The permit should be comprised of generalities that describe the minor
changes to the existing electrical system. Furthermore, it should be for
the *entire* building. Inspection is required prior to electrifying
any new or modified circuits. The inspector will plan on coming one time to
inspect everything, plugs need to be out of their boxes, jbox's exposed w/o
the plate cover (but the cover needs to be present), new breakers should
not be installed in sub-panels unless the entire panel is locked and tagged
out (this means no one can accidentally turn on the supply breaker).
Lastly, we need to have a licensed electrician preform the install. So go
through your contacts. Lastly I think we should meet face to face to
discuss how to move forward and to review the permit draft which needs to
be prepared. I will be out of town this weekend but will be available via
the permit. Also you may find this
the information is not exactly correct but please feel free to use it for
reference- it is what we started with to get a handle of material cost and
scope of Sudo's electrical needs.

Steve I am forwarding this thread to Whitney who
drafted our electrical
plans and has been spearheading the electrical effort, and can probably
give you a better answer on the exact permit timeline and costs.

I think that we're almost ready with our plans. Would getting them to you
by Tuesday afternoon work for you?
