The FBI Attorney Office was renovating the 37th and 38th floors.  The electrician hired us to do pull testing on the existing cast in place inserts into the Q deck system.  The contractor wanted to use the existing Q deck ceiling inserts to hang their electrical trays.  This would prevent them from having to drill overhead anchors throughout the project which would save them time and material.  This would also prevent them from drilling unnecessarily into the Q deck. The General Services Administration (GSA) required the contractor to do pull testing on these inserts to ensure that they were capable of withstanding the loads since they were installed in the 1960’s.  The pull testing proved that the existing inserts were capable of withstanding the required loads and enabled the contractor to move forward with the project as planned.
