I'm working on the measurement of a new office building. When I first measured the electrical rooms, the rooms were rectangle and no pipes were capped. When I returned, weeks later, walls were built around some pipes in corners. I'm pretty sure that those areas are now considered major vertical penetrations.
- Where are the boundaries of those MVP? Sometimes, they are against a thick concrete structural wall. Should the thickness of all the walls around the pipes be included in the MVP area?
- If the "box" (pipe+new walls) is smaller than 1 sq.ft., should it be ignored?
- When evaluating if a MVP (with enclosing walls) is smaller or bigger than 1 sq.ft., do we have to consider the thickness of all the walls around the MVP?
Thank you in advance for your answer
