which can work independently on the site
Explanation:
According to Infopedia "estaleiro" in addition to being a shipyard is: "local onde está a decorrer uma obra". Therefore I think "site" would be a generic option.

agree  rhandler: In Brazil, estaleiro is used only for a shipyard. In this sense, we would say "canteiro".

agree  oxygen4u: De facto, em Portugal, o estaleiro é o local da obra. Em Cabo verde é o mesmo. :)
