Your post brought me some clarity. I'm positive the engineers have spec'd the " concrete screw" for the seismic zone. I wouldn't say they're faster but maybe ? Depends on how many holes you've got laid out I would say.

Some progress. Any suggestions ? There's a couple iffy's that I've brought up to the boss. Can you spot them ?
First pic is the 120 H W , second is 140 H W for the kitchen. The 120 feeds the 140.

This used to bug the crap out of me. When I first got to this job they put me on copper, short time later I was running mains. For chitz and giggles I took a developed length. First three dimensions are three pipe domestic, second is five pipe domestic with two 140 hots. Just mains , not including laterals. I'm figuring about a 1/4 mile , 1/2" to 3", untested. We'll see how it turns out. It's insulated and painted flat black.

Some top notch looking work there. Is this a normal practice? It's the only thing that caught my eye as potentially being bad, but I don't do commercial so don't really know. Seems to me that they would have ones that fit better like the ones shown next to the wall.

That is oversized because it needs to be insulated.

For me not more than 2-3 leaks. I did a 24 story building once and soldered the majority of the tub/shower sets and not a single leak. I was quite happy about that because we only tested everything when the walls were tiled over!
