Do I need emergency lighting installed with my temporary lighting stringers?
If your question is "Do I need to provide emergency egress lighting for a construction site?" As it applies to the NEC, the answer is no.
My question is, Why do you think you need to provide emergency egress lighting with the use of temporary lighting strings?
My answer to my super was no but we reviewed and because the lighting is lighting up a walkway with a roof and walls. That there may need to be lighting is we lose the temp lights. Plus I suggested we may need to install exit signs at the entrance and exit and "not an exit" at others opening to the plant.

I believe Brian Baughman's answer is correct as qualified for a construction site of a permanent structure. However a temporary enclosed tent like structure, say for housing COVID-19 patients, depending on size, would require emergency lighting and exit signage per Chapter 31 of the International Fire Code (IFC) , 2015
It would help to know if this is a construction site that is for a new building or structure.
Or if this is some kind of temporary building or structure, with modifications being made that is still "in use" by people (MF makes a great point).
This way we can give a good answer and we don't have to guess.
