French term or phrase: travaux d'arrêt
From a list of material/equipment for a worksite (boilerworks and repairs). I am looking for a specific, documented term, please, not best approximations. It would seem to describe a type of operation, intervention, or contract work.

example:"2 containers vides pour travaux d'arrêt"; "1 bungalow bureau pour travaux d'arrêt"

shutdown work
Explanation:
i.e. work carried out during scheduled shutdown? Industries that work continuously schedule shutdown periods for maintenance etc. I am personally familiar with such shutdowns for nuclear power plants.

If specialist contractors are brought in to carry out maintenance during shutdown, they will require offices, canteens, and storage areas. During normal operating periods these premises will indeed by empty (normally), but not during an "arrêt". On the other hand, normal operating staff may have enforced vacations then!

TYPE OF SHUTDOWN WORK IS CRUCIAL. It is vitally important that the shutdown work list be kept as short as possible. Keeping the list short is both the means to reduce costs and the primary method for focusing on work that can only be performed during a major outage. All other work is deferred to a time outside of the shutdown window.
The main activity during the shutdown should be preventive in nature (including equipment inspections), followed by cleaning and repairs.
[...]
There is a delicate balance between scheduled downtime and plant reliability. Major shutdown work is intended to support maintenance efforts carried out until the next major shutdown, including minor downtime repairs.

Shutdown - TD will support BD during the shutdown as best we can. Dave Augustine is assembling the work list, as it progresses we will do our best to support needs. TD needs to watch the vacation situation, particularly for those people we expect will be called into the shutdown work. Shutdown plan is August 25 for 7 weeks.

Now that I've done the legwork for you, consider that confidence level boosted.

Thanks very much.
Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks, Bourth, but I don't see why one would have empty containers and a bungalow on hand, as if to set up at a work site, for periods of essentially not working.

Asker: Point (amply) made, and point taken. Thanks for the legwork. I will need to return to that project and review just how this fits in.
