What is a setting out survey?
A setting out survey involves transferring the design of a building or other structure onto the physical land. This is done by marking out key points and guiding markers on the ground so that the construction team can build the structure in the correct position and to the correct dimensions.
When do I need a setting out survey?
Setting out is required for all construction projects that need to lie within a boundary such as:
- Extensions on existing buildings
- New buildings and structures (of all sizes and locations)
- Roads, bridges, and tunnels
