STANDARD SPECIFICATIONS FOR CONSTRUCTION WORKS

STANDARD SPECIFICATIONS FOR CONSTRUCTION WORKS
STANDARD
SPECIFICATIONS FOR
CONSTRUCTION WORKS
2008
Module – 16 – Electrical Installation
Introduction
The Standard Specification is published in a series of 21 stand-alone modules each addressing
single distinct areas of the construction process. This stand-alone module 16 addresses the main
aspects of electrical installation in general.
The purpose of the MoW STANDARD SPECIFICATIONS FOR CONSTRUCTION is to provide the
design professional with a guide for accepted construction practices for Ministry of Works projects.
As an aid to the designer, these Standard Specifications are provided for the inclusion in proposed
development projects for ease, efficiency and cost savings.
The Standard Specifications are not intended to limit the design responsibility of the design
professional. However, they establish a minimum acceptable criterion and/or quality for use within
Ministry of Works projects.
The design professional may increase the requirements of an item contained in the Standard
Specifications to meet job requirements, but when this is done, there should be no reference for
that item on the drawings to the Ministry of Works Standard Specifications and a new specification
should be included with the drawings or project contract documents.
The design professional must review all Standard Specifications to be sure that they are adequate
for the proposed project based on the job site conditions; the design professional is solely
responsible for the designs submitted under his seal.
In order to keep design standards current with changing regulations and improved construction
materials and practices this section will be updated and maintained by the concerned authorities of
the Ministry of Works. Prior to starting a new project, the design professional should contact the
concerned Directorate of the Ministry of Works to verify that he/she has the latest document
revisions.

Foreword
This specification provides the basis for electrical work in building construction. It relates to the
provision of all plant, labour and materials involved in connection with the electrical work.
This specification must be read in its entirety, as it is structured in order of work-flow, which means
that items or activities appear in several places in the specification corresponding to the
progression of the construction process.
For larger or more complex or specialist projects, a project-specific Particular Specification for
electrical work may also be provided.
Absence of clauses for materials and methods does not necessarily signify that they can not be
used. Proposals for use of innovative methods and materials are encouraged and are subject to
review and approval by the Client.
Where the word approved is used in this specification, this means that the Client or Engineer has
been consulted and has confirmed that the item or procedure is acceptable in the specific context
for which approval has been requested.
