Lack of neutrals in new building

In a new building that just went live, I'm very concerned about the lack of neutrals. Unfortunatly, there are politics involved. The building for example, like 6 hot with only two neutrals in an area

So,, how to watch for problems?
Could it have anything to do with a little sorter "blowing up' yesterday with fire and sparks coming out of it.
How to test?
Who to call to check out the building?

Lack of neutrals in new building

Is this a 3 phase system inside a commercial building? If so then sharing neturals with 3 phases is a common practice. I can't understand why someone would come to a homeowners board to ask about a commercial building.

I agree. A little background would be helpful.
Maybe a profile as well.........:confused:
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
