Default Are they a real plumbers?

Found this gems (?) today during a walk through for a new local that should be open next week. Funny $hit is they just need the fire marshall inspection to open.

PS. Copper draining into the funnel it's the 3 compartment sink drain.
- Grease interceptor under mop-sink.

Most likely a/c condensate drain lines. Branch tailpiece is upside down.

I am not at all familiar with the tailpiece on that lav. Never seen one. I guess it's same as a dishwasher tailpiece?

Gravity grid drain trap primer. Installed 100s of them. They actually work great.
pEVANB and Gargalaxy like this.

So it's a trap primer? Or they are using it to pickup a condensate line? Why would a lavatory need a trap primer?

Yes, it's a trap primer. The difference to a trap primer valve is that this one work by gravity as @89plumbum said and it's not tapped or connected to the cold water.
This is a commercial building and most of the trap primers are connected to/in the lav to wash the floor drain.
