Italian term or phrase: Installazione in cantiere
Hi! I have a little doubt about what "cantiere" means in the italian phrase "installazione in cantiere";
The phrase in which this appears is the following:
"...e per il controllo dei costi sia durante la fase esecutiva della progettazione sia durante le attivitá d'installazione in cantiere".

It has to do with the assembly of an electrical system.

Thank you very much for your answers!

Explanation:
It refers to the work done on site (i.e. the place where the equipment is being installed), as distinct from preparatory work done at the factory or at the equipment supplier's premises.

agree  sarahca: yes, cantiere is the building site. Here it would be "during on-site installation".
