Our Services – Setting Out Surveys 2018-05-04T11:24:49+00:00


We provide you with experienced setting out engineers to help you accurately position elements such as foundations, columns, holding down bolts to within 1 mm accuracy.

Precise Setting Out Surveys for Your Projects

Our Setting Out 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)!
