To get a quick understanding of an EPC Contractors performance, look at a few cable vaults. Contractors that have reasonably competent labor and supervision can typically plan cable pull work and install the requisite raceway and supports in advance of their work. This is more than a nice-to-have, since it is a code requirement, and with good reason because it is intended to greatly reduce cable damage.
In a vault there are a great many details that need attending, like cable voltage separation, grounding issues, cable bend radiuses, combed/groomed/tied cables, water management, and a variety of meaningful details.
The pictures are from a couple large, NEW, greenfield plants in developing countries that were recently completed. It is possible for an Owner to monitor and insist the pictured results are avoided, but it does take engagement and follow-through.
If you see this condition start to develop on your project, it is a strong forward indicator of broad electrical quality and safety concerns. Often this condition can lead to grounding, relay, intermittent instrument faults and other mystery issues that are very time consuming to diagnose and even more difficult to fix in an operating plant.
Condition is very difficult to repair, and expensive after-the-fact because usually cable must be replaced with the coincident outages.
