Setting Out Survey Case Studies

Frequently Asked Setting Out Survey Questions

Correct setting out is an important element of a project. Items that have been placed incorrectly can cause major problems such as:

Things Don’t Fit
This can be extremely expensive, having a pile in the wrong place, for instance, may require removal and replacement. This will cause delays and significant costs.

Planning Restrictions
During the planning stage, there may be certain stipulations that must be upheld. Building too close to a boundary or positioning your foundations too high may cause problems with a structure being built too high for instance.

This all depends on how long we are on-site for and whereabouts your project is.

We typically offer day rate costs for undertaking setting out works. We can provide half-day rates if you only have a small number of things that need positioning.
