This will be your starting point from here. The NEC states that you must install a strap near each end of the conduit. In this case your calculated demand load dictating your main service rated panel required a minimum main service rated panel size of amps.
Find Local Contractor Call: If the any box is metal, you must bond the metal box to the grounding conductor. If all volt receptacles installed on the temporary or installed for use as temporary wiring are on the same branch circuit, the GFCI protective device installed as the first receptacle on that circuit may protect be used as the GFCI protective device serving all other receptacles on that circuit attached to the load side of that GFCI protective.
