1. Select demolition of electrical circuits had already taken place during this renovation.
2. Because some circuits also fed areas outside the workspace, the circuits were traced to determine which lines could be de-energized for removal and which lines would remain active.
3. It was determined that the electrical line question was not a line in the scope of the demolition phase. The line dropped from above the ceiling and was an existing line that was tucked behind pipes, conduit and other material. No contractors had worked on this line to this point in the project.
4. The electrical cable was stowed above the ceiling with bare wires exposed.
