7.        METHOD OF PREPARATION

              

7.1.        Ensure excavation and trenching size and dimension is correct before formwork and/or conduit installation.

7.2.        Below grade Duct bank reference elevation minimum level is correct as shown in approved IFC drawing.

7.3.        Cable trench routing as per cable trench layout approved IFC drawing

7.4.        Check whether the area is ready for the conduit to be laid. Either it is underground or under slab and overhead installation

7.5.        Check that all Low and Medium Voltage cables shall be installed in accordance with the requirements of IEC 60364-5, wiring rules, for a category B underground wiring system. In addition, Medium voltage cables shall be buried to a minimum depth of 1.2 meters and low voltage power and control cables shall be buried to a minimum depth of 0.8 meters below final grade.

7.6.        .For Non-Metallic conduit and fittings joining recommended approved PVC cement and cleaner.

7.7.        Underground conduit shall be laid in excavated trench, clear from stone debris. Conduit under road should comply SAES-P-104 Table 2. Cable trench clean from hard materials

7.8.        Ensure pipe ends, adapter ends shall be sealed properly.

7.9.        Check that after the cable slab or protection covers have been placed in position the trench shall be backfilled and compacted.

7.10.      Backfill shall consists of material obtained from the excavation, or elsewhere, which is relatively free of roots, stumps or other pieces of organic material  and from stones or broken rock larger than 150mm.

7.11.      Cables under roadways and other vehicular traffic areas shall be run in suitable cable ducts, in accordance with the relevant Philippine installation standard.

7.12.      Check the installation of marker tape along the center line of each cable

7.13.      If not specified in the drawings, the fabricated Duck bank spacers shall be used at intervals not exceeding 2.4 meters as per SAES-P-104 Sec. 10.5.4

7.14.      Final inspection by Electrical / Instrumentation QC.

7.15.      Instrument to 150mm.
