Install Wordpress - Staging Directory


I'm putting together a site for a non-profit using wordpress. They currently have a site online, and they'd like it to remain intact while I'm building out the new one.

I was planning on just creating a folder on their server, dropping all the wordpress files in there, and running the wordpress install like normal.  (www.example.com/newsite)

Once the sites all ready and approved, can I just move all of the files out of the 'newsite' directory into the root directory?

Are there any settings that i'll need to change?

I appreciate your input.
