These items involve setting up:

• a platform for the site installations

• the site installations

• detours for any systems or networks that cross the site

• a site clearance procedure - temporary fencing

• rerouting of any transversal water flows that will have to be intercepted

The company sets up one or more platforms for its site installations in compliance with environmental constraints by employing various types of plant items to prevent pollution. On this platform it erects its site offices, its laboratory, its site plant workshop, and possibly its crushing and processing stations.

If any systems or networks that are intercepted by the work, such as electric power lines or telecommunications lines, both overhead and underground, have not been diverted by other prior contracts or contractors, the company will implement the necessary detours.

The site access and other routes will be rid of surface vegetations and any structures will be demolished.
Temporary fencing will be erected on the edge of the rights of way to stop people and animals from entering the site.

Small transversal water flows will be replaced by drain nozzles.
Since larger ones will have to be crossed by vehicles carrying excavated materials, they will be provided with a temporary crossing structure prior to construction of the final structure.
