Spanish term or phrase: construcción en polígonos
También "cuadrilla de construcción de polígonos", como un modo de trabajo. Aparece en títulos de columnas de Excel, no hay más contexto.
Esto se refiere a reparaciones y nuevas construcciones en plantas e instalaciones de gas y electricidad. ¿Es un tipo de construcción, como un sitio industrial, por ejemplo? Tengo dudas porque en otra oración se opone a ese concepto, en una comparación.

Lo único distinto que encuentro es una empresa que se llama Polygon que tiene un método para mantener a raya la humedad y la corrosión durante la construcción. Tiene sentido que sea una construcción de ese tipo, pero no encuentro el modo de decirlo en inglés... salvo que nombre a la empresa, cosa que el original no hace.

construction of industrial parks


Explanation:
I found a matched pair of reports from UNCTAD, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development; the two reports are essentially identical, one is in English, the other in Spanish. In Section 2, Paragraph 7 of the Spanish report there is the phrase " la creación de grandes polígonos industriales y proyectos de infraestructura en Indonesia y China (por ejemplo, "Suzhou Industrial Park", polígono industrial de China y Singapur)." - which is rendered in Section 2, Paragraph 7 of the English version as: "the development of large industrial estates and infrastructural projects in Indonesia and China (e.g. China-Singapore Suzhou Industrial Park)."
The English document is at: http://unctad.org/en/Docs/c3em26d2a3_en.pdf
The Spanish document is at: http://unctad.org/es/Docs/c3em26d2a3_sp.pdf
BTW, where is the ST document from?

Notes to answerer
Asker: I think this must be it. This appears in a list of Excell cells and I have no answer from the client yet, but I'm inclined to translate it as industrial site or park. I'll give them a little more time and decide on my own. Thank you!

Asker: The country of origin is Chile. They finally chose "selected area". It seems it is not a dedicated site, they are just expanding pipelines in different areas and that's how they say it... Thanks for your help!
