Enabling works for construction

Enabling works is a generic description for site preparation works that might take place prior to work under the main construction contract.

This could include:

Enabling works might be preceded by 'mobilisation' activities, carried out after the client has selected the contractor, but before works commence on site. These are preparatory activities, such as; preparing method statements, arranging road closures, placing necessary sub-contracts and so on. See mobilisation for more information.
