In terms of construction, it often refers to machinery, plant, apparatus, etc., being placed in position or connected for use. Often this can refer to a system or unit with accompanying assemblies, accessories, parts, and so on. It can also include connection to the services which are required to enable the installation to operate.
Installation drawings are developed from co-ordinated detail drawings and present the information needed by trades to install part of the works. This may be particularly important for complex installations such as plant rooms, data centres, ventilation systems, underfloor heating, and so on.
