Running H.V. down close to the ground = unsafe operation. Of course i'm sure
that it won't be to code either.

What kind of building is this? If its a tiltup building, than you CAN'T cut
holes in the roof. The roof of the tilt up building is what keeps the walls
from falling. (well the only holes i've seen in a tiltup wall were caused by
an earthquake.. and the building did almost collapse after that.
