Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Cost estimate
German term or phrase: Mietgrenze
This is a cost estimate of a swiss construction company, and this sections pertains to the power supply to commercial and office areas of a building. It should be US English. I understand the individual words, but do not grasp the meaning of the sentence:

Zuleitungen Elektrisch, TT und TV werden bis und mit Unterverteiler, resp. Mietgrenze ausgeführt.

TT and TV power supply run up to and with the secondary distributor, and/or rent threshold??

Thanks, and this time I'll wait longer. I'm learning.
