You need basic construction knowledge to visualize where everything else in the house is going to go. You need to need to have an understanding about other trades requirements and if you are going to get in their way or not.

All of this comes through training and experience.
plus rather than looking at it as "saves the LV time" I look at it as " took profit from LV". It is part of the job so why would I want somebody else to do my work? I can save the LV guy all the time he wants to be saved; I can give the entire job to somebody else.

Exactly. I do not warrant terminations if the wire was pulled by someone else. If I terminate it and the wire is found to be bad, you are still paying for the terminations.

Since this thread is 1-1/2 years old and Chilla hasn't posted in 11 months, I doubt you'll get an answer.
