Setting Out services

Setting outSetting-Out

When a site layout design has been established, we appreciate how critical it can be that this information is accurately transferred onto site.
Using the latest survey instruments our surveyors can set-out points on site as required, using the engineers’ design drawings and design co-ordinates.
Our role can vary greatly depending on the complexity of the project; in some cases we set-out key control points only; for use by resident site engineers, and in other cases we carry out a complete setting-out service.
We work closely with site managers, to provide a reliable, flexible back-up service, to set-out further phases of the works as and when required.

Recent projects include the setting-out of trenches for archaeological excavation, and precise setting-out for specialist façade installations during tall building / skyscraper construction.

In addition to setting-out work, we are able to carry out check surveys at various stages throughout the construction process; which can involve the independent checking of points set-out by others, where quality monitoring is required.

On a different note; our surveyors have recently been setting-out “safe-haven” routes for protected species near a proposed new pipeline route.

The client provided us with co-ordinates for a “no-go” area where the wildlife could move uninterrupted whilst the construction work was in progress.

The routes were designed by environmental specialists who had studied the movements and habits of the creatures.

Total Surveys have recently been awarded a large contract to carry out setting-out & as-built survey work throughout the construction of a large prestigious apartment complex in central London.

This is high precision work, where very accurate measurements are required.

Our teams of surveyors are working closely with the main contractor on-site to ensure the survey tasks are carried out as and when required, in-line with the construction programme for the build; whilst dovetailing with the other trades present on-site.

Our surveyors have designed, and had manufactured, a special prism arrangement to assist in carrying out this work as efficiently as possible. Reliability and accuracy are of key importance here, since our work is programmed around others and is being utilised and relied upon by other subcontractors.

We are able to help throughout the construction process; further information about the range of services that Total Surveys can provide, is available here.
