Trying to decide on a concise location to indicate mounting heights for wall mounted devices, such as electrical receptacles, data drops, fire alarm pull stations, etc. One approach would be to indicate it in the individual work result section, another has been to indicate it in 26 05 00. I've also on short on-drawing specs thrown them into 01 70 00.
Thoughts on if there is a better approach?

On the Drawings.

x2. On the drawings. Either in the interior elevations, or a typical plan by room type... with interior elevations showing the mounting. And for extra credit, showing the backing or at least calling out the appropriate backing details by equipment type.

Yes, on the drawings. I too have mostly seen them on the architectural interior elevations, but the electrical engineer needs to have a cross-reference from the electrical drawings to the architectural drawings.

On the drawings. Include a note on the drawings that architectural elevations take precedence over electrical elevations and if there are conflicts between architectural and electrical, to adjust locations of electrical equipment at no additional cost to the owner. Specifications should have language that requires the contractor to mark locations of electrical equipment prior to roughing-in for conflicts with architectural, studs, etc. Any conflicts should be brought to the attention of the contract administrator and moved to an agreed upon location.
Get rid of 26 05 00 if you can. That section always seems to conflict with the individual sections.

Every architectural firm I've worked for has put them on the drawings. That goes for toilet accessories too.

Firms in Texas (where review by an accessibility consultant is required) are generally going to put this information on a separate sheet. Most of it has to comply with accessibility standards. (In Texas we have standards, not guidelines.)
