The way my Boss usually does it (here in conduit country):
[IIRC - it's late, and I'm not even halfway through a 36 hour shift, so I apologize in advance
Install Temp Service
Install meter box, service entrance, and MPB (typically in basement)
Run "jumpers" from temp service through service entrance to MPB - we usually mount (2) 1900's piggybacked to the MPB as temporary outlets.
Find likely (or convenient) path. Run 1 pipe 2fl to MPB. Install 2 1900 boxes on each floor, and run to the MPB. Connect 4 duplex 20a recepts for contractors (mainly us) for lights and drills. This will be pulled later, and incorporated into house. Connect with appropriate conductors based on distance - I think he usually pulls 10 awg cu - 4 circuits on 20a breakers.
The next two are done simultaneously:
Re-review plans, and "spot" 1900's in each area (rooms, halls, attic, garage) for recepts, sw's; spot octagons for sconces, fan support boxes, etc. Indicate home run box (typically a deep 1900 used for switches in finished install), or feed from/to other rooms if no HR in area. Tack mount your can lights.
Conduit runs stubbed from MPB up to 1fl (# of runs determined by # of rooms, special needs, SP's, etc) - usually 3/4 EMT for HR's
Pipe each area from area outlets to area HR box, and all 3 and 4 (and 5) way switch runs.
Complete all HR's from areas to stubs from basement.
Pull wires in rooms. # in HR based on # of circuits in room, special needs/demands, etc (DUH). Try to remember to label your runs - saves time and guess work later!
Affix plaster rings for 1900's, and caps for octagons/fan support boxes.
Tuck ends into boxes for drywallers / painters
End of rough period - await "rough" AHJ inspection
Connect receptacles, switches; cap & tape any unused conductors (i.e. occupant supplied fixtures).
connect HR's - test and label - 2 way's are great for this.
Await pre-final AHJ inspection
Finish trimming out outlets and switches by adding cover plates (clip-on pocket level is great for this). Install owner-supplied fixtures. Explain to owner that you really can't change the way things are done at this point. Really.
Test all circuits. Await Final AHJ inspection (woo hoo)
Think that's it. I'm goin' to bed.
