Rubbish Removal Rubbish will be cleared away at regular intervals. All staff will be briefed in the importance of this requirement, particularly from a safety perspective.

Snagging Project Closeout The installation works will be continuously checked by our Installation Supervisor to check that they conform to specified and statutory standards. In addition as each zone / area is completed it will be thoroughly snagged and offered to the construction manager for acceptance. This approach will ensure that at the end of the project the amount of snagging is minimal and will allow the witnessing and demonstration phase of the project to continue unhindered. In the event of snagged items being raised then these will be attended to as soon as practically possible.

Key Dependencies The electrical installation progress will be governed in time and sequence by the availability of areas, and those responsible for installing the equipment that may require interfacing to. a) Before installation can begin the following requirements should be met Co-ordinated drawings issued to/by AND Group Approval of system containment routes attained Unhindered access to all associated areas b) Before commissioning can begin the following requirements should be met Power available Unhindered access to all associated areas

Project Mobilisation As soon as AND Group are advised that the contract has been successfully awarded to them, the Project Team will be brought together with the Bid Team to hand-over the project and to plan the site set up. Necessary procurement of site office accommodation will be made if required, and connection to telecoms and power will be requested if required. All principal sub contractors will be notified that a sub contract order is about to be placed. The factory/warehouse and supplies will also be advised of the impending product demand. During this pre-site period the Bid Team will remain heavily involved in the project to ensure that the design concept is fully understood and to address any subsequent questions. Several members of the bid team will continue to have a proactive roll in the project right through to completion. This illuminates unnecessary internal co-ordination problems. The main aim of the team will be to set up the site office and become fully functional within a matter of days and to ensure that all key personnel have been given full safety inductions.

Design Development & Approval The design engineer in co-operation with the project manager will begin the task of firming up the design information and will raise necessary Request For Information Forms to enable the preparation of schedules and other ancillary equipment. Wiring diagrams will be produced to an agreed schedule to allow adequate time for manufacture and delivery to site. These drawings will be submitted for approval and subject to amendment for comments will form the detail that the equipment is configured to. There will be a cycle to allow for the update and re-submission of documents in accordance with any comments made by the client.

Electrical Installation & Testing

a) Design and Approval A detailed survey will be made to establish the cable routes of the system. Cable routes will be made to avoid where possible all other systems. From the survey, the issued drawings will be marked up detailing all containment routes and proposed materials and equipment to be installed for approval. The containment system and support brackets will be installed in accordance with the Health and Safety Policy using plant and equipment to suit the application. AND or electrical contractor will implement the marked up drawings detailing all cable containment routes into the co-ordinated drawings, unless previously agreed during the tender period, in which case we will require the co-ordinated drawing on disc in the Auto CAD format ten days from the approval date. Liaison will be made with the employer and main parties regarding site procedures.
Outline Method Statement For Projects Page Page 9 of 14

Consultations will be carried out with employer and main parties to produce a programme of work to coincide with the main programme. The issue of our approved marked up drawings together with our programme will be made before site work can proceed. Actual commencement of the installation works would be agreed with the employer and main parties, which would also depend on the working areas being made available. Before commencement of the installation, the final positioning of all field equipment would need to be established with the employer and main parties. These would also be in line with the approved co-ordinated drawings. b) Installation All works will be carried out in accordance with: Client Specification Current Edition of the I.E.E (Institution of Electrical Engineers)Regulations All works/operations will be carried out in accordance with all proven methods and industry standards. All due care shall be taken to comply with the relevant safety procedures to ensure the highest degree of safety is maintained at all times.

Where applicable, all manufactures equipment handbooks and manuals will be utilised and filed on site to aid all installations works and testing. All application will be carried out in co-operation with other trades working in the same areas, therefore installation risk would be minimised. Cables will be installed in the cable trunking and conduits in the appropriate areas as detailed on the approved drawing. c) Testing On completion of the cable carrier, conduit and wiring installation, all of the cables will be tested for their insulation, and continuity in accordance with BS5839 part 1. This will include earth leakage, core to core resistance and certified before the connection of any equipment and final connection to the main supply can commence. All documentation will be issued to the electrical contractor.

Pre Commissioning All works will conform to the standards set out. The entire system will be systematically checked to establish the suitability for commissioning. The control panels would initially have been tested off site and both would have been offered for approval to the client. The commissioning and/or projects engineer shall inspect each area/floor with the installation contractor or sub-contractor to verify that the installation works are completed.

Commissioning Prior to commencement of our commissioning activities, we shall require the following: a) Power, permanent or temporary, to system panels and associated items of equipment not fed from the panels.
