In our experience, Division 12 “Furnishing” is the preferred specification section for all parts of the tambient system that touch the furniture. For items that touch the building, like ceiling sensors and wall switches, Division 16 “Electrical” is preferred.
In most jurisdictions, the furniture dealer will install the tambient fixtures and any associated controls that are attached to the furniture. Where our wireless controls are used, we recommend that controls such as wireless ceiling mounted sensors, wireless wall switches and hardwired transmitters be installed by the electrical contractor. Basically, if it touches the furniture, the furniture dealer installs it. If it touches the building, the electrical contractor installs it.
