Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) CONSTRUCTION SPLICES You are strongly encouraged to have any splices that may occur during this project, reviewed by CSFD. Failure to do so, can result in coordination issues that could prevent a final inspection from being completed, thus delaying the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.
