What are Construction Set-outs?

A Construction Set-out Survey involves the determination of building footprints and construction gridlines.

Basically, this means transferring a building design onto the land itself, establishing key points and using markers to guide the builders and ensure the accuracy of construction.

Construction Set-Out Surveys are Important For These Reasons:

  • They allow for the construction to be done in accordance with the approved designs.
  • They enable the construction team to build exactly as planned, as markers are physically laid out in front of them.
  • They ensure that the construction is done within the legal boundary lines, which can help avoid potentially expensive and disruptive legal disputes.
  • Before construction begins, physical markers are laid out to help identify any potential design flaws.
  • Construction set-out is a necessity for effective management of construction crew on any size project, from modest homes to substantial commercial building projects.




How can we help with a Construction Set-out Survey?

We will first review and identify anomalies (if any) in the design drawings prior to heading out on-site. Once on-site, we will transfer the design onto the construction site by way of setting out construction grid lines with survey markers and also establishing Temporary Bench Marks (TBMs) with an established Level in accordance with the design drawings for the rest of the Construction works to be based on. A Plan of Set-out will be issued showing the results of our Construction Set-out Survey, which can be used for convenience throughout the construction process.
