I'm inexperienced but: Seems unusual having alot of jack and cripples. From what I think, I guess it's to transmit the load from the top plate to the foundation. From things I have read, extra king studs are more important than extra jacks.
I also don't understand the top plate being broken by the beams.
Maybe the contractor is just trying to use more lumber so he makes more money. Lol!
Makes one wonder what is outside? flying buttresses?
