Why Are Precise Surveys So 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.
