    Re: what dose "erect,Hoardings,outlined "mean

    Hi mooyong

    For "hoardings" see:
    hoardings - definition of hoardings by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
    "A temporary wooden fence around a building or structure under construction or repair." [AME]

    "[In BrE it regularly means] a large board used for displaying advertising posters, as by a road Also called (esp US and Canadian) billboard"

    "Erect" means to build them.

    "as outlined by the Owner" means "as identified by the Owner [client] in the enquiry/contract documents.

    Hope this helps
