The building shall be wired to — lamp outlets, – switch outlets, (and — meter outlets) for the equivalent of —, - ampere, — volt lamps. The wiring shall be (to outlets only) (except for cut-outs and switches; cut-outs and switches shall be furnished and installed complete). At each outlet the loose wire shall be neatly coiled and the ends care
