Method Statement For Installation Of

Electric PVC Conduits And Accessories


Method Statement For Installation Of Electrical PVC Conduits And Accessories In The Concrete
Slabs, Columns, Block Works And Concrete Walls

1. Introduction and Scope


This method statement explains the detailed requirements and procedures for the installation of
PVC Conduits and accessories in the concrete slabs, columns, block works and concrete walls.

2. Applicable Project Specification

Document No.:
Section: Conduit
Division:
Sub-division:

3. Location of Activity

Inside and out side the building.

4. Operation
Material: Material used will be as approved by the engineer. The sizes and routes routing will be
as per the approved shop drawing.
Storage and Protection: Deliver components parts to site, completely identified in accordance
with shop and certified CAD drawings prepared for this work. Store in accordance with the
manufacturers instructions, above ground, properly protected from the weather and construction
activities.

5. Installation

1.

During the course of the installation of the conduit system, procedures for working and
dressing the installation as recommended shall be employed.
2.
All bends and sets shall be in accordance with IEE regulation 522-08 formed with the aid
of a helical spring fitted internally, with if necessary, the conduit warmed sufficiently for it to
move without avoidable wall thinning of the out side of the bend.

3.

Conduit system shall be installed so as to ensure compliance with the requirements of


Specified Standard and Regulation.
4.
Joints between PVC conduit + fittings shall be made with suitable adhesive, but
expansion couplings shall be installed where any length of conduit , inclusive of draw in boxes
etc, exceeds five meters in length.
5.
The minimum and maximum sizes of conduit to be employed shall be 20mm and
32mmdiameter respectively, unless otherwise stated in subsequent sections of the
specification.
6.
Conduits in floors shall be routed and installed so as to avoid the fixings of floor standing
equipment to be installed on the floor.

6. Fixing of Conduits

When conduits are run on shuttering, prior to the laying of concrete insitu, additional security
must be provided near to every box and at intervals of not more than 1.2 meters by binding short
lengths of steel wire, of not less than 2mm diameter twisted around the conduit and reinforcing
steel. The conduits shall be adequately fixed to prevent excessive movement and damage during
the pouring and setting of concrete and shall be protected from mechanical damage. Check there

is no damage before screed / concrete is poured. Unless otherwise indicated to cast in conduits
shall not be less than 30mm.cores to plastered over conduits shall not be less than 5mm.
Where conduits are left "open ended" prior to wiring they shall be protected by caps or plugs to
prevent the ingress of building material.
All conduits runs must be designed to permit wiring to be readily installed after the complete
erection of the conduits through the available draw-in, accessory and luminary suspension boxes.
Where surface mounted equipment (other than luminaries) is specified, all concealed conduits
shall be terminated and an adaptable box installed recessed into the wall at every surface
mounted equipment position.
Where conduits pass through an external wall/roof the conduit box shall be fitted on the side and
after wiring filled with an inert, permanently plastic compound having a high insulation value.
Make provision in conduit and trunking, installation where building expansion joints are crossed
or settlement is likely
Ensure conduits are not concealed until works has been inspected and approved. Ensure that
conduit and fittings buried in concrete or behind plaster are protected against corrosion or
electrolytic action prior to rendering.
