external works, site works
On a building project, VRD corresponds to "external works" or "site works" in English, ie all the (more or less) related works that are not within the envelope of the building, such as drainlaying, road building, landscaping, gates, fences, etc.
<<external works. Construction works outside a building, a trade that groups roadbuilding, drainage, landscaping, street furniture, fencing, and the like>>
