We had it put in the remodel 12 years ago. In one lab we couldn’t get it to work. We found that the pipes weren’t connected in the ceiling! The rooms all have keyed on switches so it wasn’t coming out all the time luckily. It was funny after we got the pipes connected! Shoddy contractors!

It’s good to have the conversation about whether or not plumbed natural gas will actually be used in the new building. It’s expensive to install and if there isn’t a compelling need, why go to the expense?
To answer your question – yes, plumbed natural gas is allowed in new science buildings at Davis.

Birkett's hypothesis: "Any chemical reaction
that proceeds smoothly under normal conditions,
can proceed violently in the presence of an idiot."
Is the installation of plumbed natural gas still allowed in new science buildings?
I assume so. On the other hand…
I was wondering if anyone absolutely prohibits the installation of natural gas and if so, why?
