Power network construction may be thought of as being predominately concerned with the design, installation and commissioning of power network assets (e.g. circuit breakers, protection systems, OHL, HV cables, etc.). However, a fully operational power network can only be achieved with the supporting infrastructure of what may be termed `civil, structural and building engineering' (CSBE) - that is the civil engineering oriented assets concerned with groundworks, roadways, support structures, buildings, etc. Such assets may typically comprise of the order of 45% of a major power network construction project and are therefore a significant consideration - and some projects are of course almost entirely civil engineering orientated. An aspect of CSBE worthy of note is that it usually involves significantly more temporary works than those concerned with power engineering assets. Within this context, the following salient CSBE design tasks will be reviewed:1, Earthworks, drainage, trenches and landscaping 2.Structural engineering 3.Substation infrastructure 4.Environmental works 4.OHL and cable civil design 5. Civil engineering work standards 6.Substation LV AC supplies.
