extension code?
it is difficult to tell what you are looking for... maybe i just haven't heard of the piece of equipment you are asking about...
or do you mean extension cord?  if you mean extenstion cord, you can get one at any hardware store, like Home Depot or Lowes.  it is safe to use an extension cord as long as you dont over load it with too many items.  see the instructions on the cord to get the ratings of how much you can connect to it.

CallandorCommented:
You mean a power extension cable?  You can get 14gauge 25-ft cords from Home Depot.  The electrical code probably won't let you use it in an office as part of a permanent install, though.  Check with the building code.

what Callandor says is true.  building code may not allow it at all, or may require the cord to be run through the ceiling.

If it is on the floor, you have to look at trip hazards (liability) as well.

what is trip hazard?

PUNKYCommented:
The ext. code is designed for maintenance, safety, power supply, and it will be controlled by electrical control room (fuse, configure, etc), etc. You can not just use trip hazard to make many ext. power ports (because this may cause insufficient power). Check with facility engineer or technician for correct installation and layout.

PUNKYCommented:
This case, you will need to calculate how much power will be used for every station, room, hallway, outdoor (every single thing that consume the power). Enough power supply is important as well as the codes that you applied so that maintenance, safety procedures, etc meet with usage. Also, consult with city engineer for correct procedure (you dont want to violate the city codes neither).

CallandorCommented:
A trip hazard is anything that can cause someone to accidentally fall down - it is a standard that the building code incorporates.  As a fellow New Yorker, I can tell you that extension cords are not going to work, and they will probably fail the fire codes.  What you can do in this situation is an enclosed conduit containing the power running along the bottom of the walls of the cubicles.

how can i contace with city engineer?
what's the difference between city code and building code?

CallandorCommented:
Your architect is supposed to be aware of all these codes.  Someone needed to file a work permit with the Building Department, so that's another person to contact.

If they are still constructing, go to the job foreman, show him what you need and ask him to get it done.  (If you have the authority.)

Let him deal with any permits or other stuff, that is his job.  Don't over complicate your task...

Those people do this for a living, and know what needs to be permitd and such.

From your original drawing, it looks like cubicals or some other type of office furniture that should have the power extensions built in.
