All the pipes encased in concrete are 3 1/2" rigid. Feeders are mostly 3 1/2" EMT. You think bending it is tough? There is one run that feeds a 1600 amp distribution panel 10 floors up. That pull was good times...

Most of the risers were 500's. There was one 1600 A Distribution panel on 10 that had 5 -3"pipes with 250's. I was wrong about the rigid in the concrete, they are 3" to the CECO vault.
