En la página 103 de este PDF se tiene un ejemplo de este término:

Durante la realización de los levantamientos se tomaron en cuenta los siguientes aspectos:
Locales colindantes, materiales constructivas, tipos de cerramientos, estado físico de la cubierta, altura de cielos, altura de dinteles y alféizar de ventanas, niveles de piso respecto a andenes exteriores, acometidas eléctricas, esperas sanitarias, cajas de registro, entre otros.
Todos estos aspectos arquitectónicos y constructivos se respaldaron con un levantamiento planimétrico y fotográfico de las instalaciones, para la posterior elaboración de trabajos de gabinete.

Explanation:
Further to my discussion entry, I may have hit upon a possible solution.

This text is from Fabio's link:

Colocación esperas eléctricas conduit
Inmediatamente de haber colocado las primeras tres hiladas de bloques se iban colocando las esperas eléctricas de tubos conduit, se colocaron dos tubos por cada espera de tomacorriente, por lo que es un circuito en serie, Ф 1⁄2”), dichas esperas se colocaban desde una altura de 0.45m sobre el NPT (Nivel de piso terminado) en dirección al suelo, soterradas.


Which suggests to me that "esperas" what are known as the "rough-in" work in construction.
If any architects or construction experts can verify or refute this (Christian?), please do.

The hard part about plumbing is the rough-in. The last step of connecting the sink, toilet, or tub is almost superfluous. Get the rough-in right and you are 90% of the way there.

We've DIYed a lot of it, but not the drywall, the shower, the rough-in electrics, or the rough-in plumbing.

Of course, I can't say whether there is more formal term for this, or whether this is what it is in fact called, but it might get you out of a spot in any case, unless someone else knows exactly what this is. I'm fairly certain it doesn't just mean "toilets".
