We work on a range of different projects and sites across London & The South East.

Our Setting Out Engineers work across the country providing a range of different setting out surveys. Below are a few examples of how we have helped construction run smoothly:

    • Constructing strip foundations where angles aren’t 90 degrees.
    • Setting out hole positions on a steel frame.
    • Positioning brickwork corners.
    • Piling operations (marine & land).
    • Setting holding down bolt locations for steel framed buildings

Why Is Precise Setting Out Important?

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.

How Much Does Your Setting Out Service Cost?

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.
