Temporary services on construction sites

Before work can begin on a construction site, whether a big or small project, a number of services must be temporarily set up. This is in addition to the permanent services that will be required for the completed development and temporary site facilities that are required for the welfare of workers.

The development of temporary site services should be part of the site layout plans. These are prepared by contractors as part of their mobilisation activities before work on site commences. See Site layout plan for more information.

These services might include:

It may be necessary to locate and connect to or divert existing services on the site.

It may be necessary to arrange for the supply of services with utilities companies.
