Setting Out Surveys 2018-01-29T09:19:24+00:00


We get your project off to the best start with precise setting out surveys for foundations, piling works, base plates and more.


Our Engineers undertake setting out surveys at building sites across London & the South East including Essex, Kent & Hertfordshire. Our setting out survey services helps our clients accurately position items such as foundations, piles, base plates, holding down bolts etc as accurately as 1mm.

We regularly assist clients where they may face tricky angles that aren’t 90 degrees or large areas that are difficult to measure conventionally. Using our industry leading Leica Survey equipment angles can be measured and set out with ease with ranges beyond 500 meters (fine for most clients)!

Examples of where we have previously helped clients:

  • Constructing strip foundations where angles aren’t 90 degrees.
  • Setting out hole positions on a steel frame.
  • Placing brickwork corners.
  • Piling operations (marine & land).

Our Setting Out Engineers arrive at your site with everything they need to set out on their own. We use Leica TS15 one-man total stations which allow us to work independently of a chain man which allows us to be much more efficient when on site. If required we can supply copies of method statements and risk assessments for the work we undertake.
