Setting out surveys
In order to begin excavation of trenches required for a building's foundation, a builder must know the positions and levels of building lines shown on the construction plans on the ground; that is, the exact length, width, depth, and position of the foundation trenches must be marked on the ground. This movement from the construction plan to the actual site by transferring dimensions from the layout plan to the ground is called setting out. It is probably the most critical step in the entire construction process.
Our surveyors extract data from drawings and plans, then precisely mark out features on the ground surface. Our surveyors are highly experienced and we will work with you to ensure your survey is completed to high quality and to meet any tight deadlines.
