1. Scope of Works
Scope of Activities
In common usage, a mock-up is a scale model of a structure, usually used for
demonstration, testing, a design, etc.
The cable, cable Ladder/Tray/Trunking system shall confirm to the material and fabrication
requirements as per this specification. This scope defines the minimum standards to be
adopted when installing Cable Containment for Ladder/Tray/Trunking and cables in buildings
and structures according to Electrical specification of client. Cable Containment and cables
shall be installed surfaced-run in the concrete slab/wall according to construction coordination drawings.
Site Procedure
Site mobilization shall be done with real time monitoring the conditions & progress of builder
works. Before commencement of the work, carry out examination of the physical condition of
the area. Photographs should be taken where necessary, prior to commencement and
during works.

I.

Method Statement
Preparation stage
a. Prior to install cable containment and cables; examine cable containment paths to
ensure all areas free of debris that may interfere with the installation.

b. Cable containment and cables drum are generally bundled and ship to site for
delivery.
c. Special care must be exercised using slings so the cable containment and cable
drum is not crushed from the improper location and lifting by sling.
d. To prevent damage to cable containment and cables, never pull from truck trailer by
chaining to bottom rung and dragging out of trailer.

e. To prevent damage to cable tray, never pull cable tray from truck trailer by chaining
to bottom rung and dragging out of trailer.

f. Inventory all items immediately after unloading, using manufactures packing list.
g. Cable tray should be stored away from high traffic areas. Cable tray should be
stacked by width and type.

II.

Installation stage:
A. Ladder/Tray/Trunking

a. Site survey the proposed routing as per approved CSD / Shop Drawing by Foreman and
Sub-Contractor.
b. Installation must be carried out based on approved shop drawings and samples by
Foreman and Sub-Contractor.
c. Select the correct size of anchor bolt and supporting bracket by Engineer, Foreman and
Sub-Contractor.
d. Install the correct size of Ladder/Tray/ Trunking, anchor bolt and supporting brackets by
Foreman and Sub-Contractor.
e. Check to ensure no sharp edge within the Ladder/Trunking/ Tray compartment by
Foreman, Assistant Foreman and Sub-Contractor.
f.

Cable tray supports- Supports for the cable tray should provide strength and working
load capacities sufficient to meet the load requirement of the cable tray wiring system.
Consideration should be given to the loads associated with future cable additions.

g. Cable tray installation- Place the next straight section across the next support, and
attach it to the previous section with a pair of splice plates and hardware. Splice plates
should be placed on the outside of the cable tray with the bolt heads on the inside of the
cable tray.

h. Expansion splices plates- It is important that thermal contraction and expansion be


considered when installing cable tray system. The length of the straight cable tray run
the temperature differential governs the number of splice plates required.

i.

Hanger Rod Clamp- Install thread nuts onto threaded rod approximately 225mm(9),
above desired location for bottom of cable tray. Place the clamp around side rail of cable
tray. Then lift entire cable section onto threaded rod running through holes in clamps.
The threaded a second set of nuts onto threaded rod moving them up until bottom of
cable tray reaches desired location.

j.

Single Channel Cable Tray Hanger- Install thread nut to threaded rod to height required.
Place hanger on threaded rod and follow with one nut. Run nut up threaded rod until

bottom of hanger is at desired height. And run top nut down to tighten. Then place the
channel on hanger and secure in place as necessary.

k. Marking- Using a square that reaches across width of the cable tray, gauge off the edge
of one side rail and mark both flanges see fig below. Next, position the square as shown
in figure. And mark the web of the rail. Marking can be done with scribe, marking pen, or
a pencil.

l.

Cutting- The cut can be using a hand held hacksaw, carbide tipped circular saw,
diamond dusted blades, hand held band saw, offset bolt cutters or high speed grinder. It
is important to get square cut to ensure good splice connection. Cable tray manufactures
offer jigs and other devices to aid in the field cutting. After cutting, smooth the cur edges
to remove any burrs.

m. Drilling- Holes for splice plates must be drilled in field-cut cable trays. The most common
method of locating the hole position is to use a splice plate as a template. Drill jigs (see
the below fig) are also available. A short piece of side rail that is punched with standard
factory hole pattern can be bolted to the splice plate to serve as a stop that rests against
the end of the field-cut side rail. Clamp the splice plate to the rail and drill through the
splice plate holes and the side rail. The correct drill size is dependent on the hardware
supplied with cable tray. Match the holes that exist in the cable tray. After drilling, remove
the burrs.

n. After installation of cable containment, Engineer-in-charge shall check the complete


works and complete the Inspection checklist for cable containment installation works.
( See annex. 1)
o. Engineer-in-charge shall arrange and request for inspection with the Owners
representative Residential Technical Officer (RTO) using approved Main con Request for
Inspection (RIN) form.
B. LV-Sub-main cables

a. Site survey of the proposed cable routing based on approved CSD by foreman /
sub-contractor together with Engineer.
b. Installation shall be carried out based on approved shop drawings & material used
shall be of approved brand.
c. In most cases, the distribution sub main cables will be in the form of XLPE /PVC
cables with copper conductors, all as defined in the particular specification and
drawings.

d. Cable containment shall be completed prior to cable installation. Draw the cables
into containment for installation of larger diameter cables rollers would be placed at
strategic location to ease the process.

e. If cables are to be jointed, then the manufacture recommended jointing kit and
methods are to be strictly adhered too.
f.

In the event of joints being unavoidable, such joints shall conform to the
requirements of BS7671 and clearly identified in the as built drawings.

g. Cables of the sizes and types specified shall be installed to follow the approximate
routes indicated on the drawings.

h. Cables shall be installed in such a manner that the cables do not come into contact
with gas, oil, steam, hot or cold water pipes.
i.

Where installed within switches, distribution boards, control panels and the like,
wiring shall be neatly and carefully bunched, being adequately supported and held
in position by means of supports or brackets or insulating material as necessary.

j.

After installation of cables, Engineer-in-charge shall check the complete works and
complete the Inspection checklist for cable installation works. ( See annex. 2)

k. Engineer-in-charge shall arrange and request for inspection with the Owners
representative Residential Technical Officer (RTO) using approved Main con
Request for Inspection (RIN) form.
