Setting Out

Setting Out 2

Site setting out is just one of our many site engineering services. The setting out procedures involved in this service can include further options such as our as-set-out reports whenever requested as part of your service order; here xyz surveys of easting, northing and height checks of points marked are given as a deliverable by our total station setting out engineers as a handover document where required.

Setting out pegs are one of our more popular setting out procedures and can involve marking out anything from temporary accommodation, site gridlines and permanent sub-structural works such as drainage runs, pile positions, building formation levels and ground beams.

Our site engineering team are also often requested to set out super-structural works such as RC slabs, columns positions and brickwork returns; returning to site again further down the line to set out K10 studwork walls and partitions, reflected ceiling soffit pipework, sprinkler and lighting systems, curtain wall cladding offsets and external works site landscaping.

For example, pile setting out is an early area where our setting out engineers have considerable experience; whether we are handling sheet piles, contiguous piles, CFA piles or river bed driven and screwed pile positioning. Our pile positioning is often carried out when conditions on site best suite our use of setting out pegs so as to withstand what are often adverse weather conditions and uneven terrains on site.

Alternatively, you may require the outline of a building that includes the complex setting out of curves, steel baseplate centrelines and drainage invert levels; setting out a building may even be straight forward for you as an experienced contractor who just wants our total station setting out for drainage pop-up locations, OS Grid pile setting out or an end of day as-built setting out survey detailing as-set-out gridline and steel column checks. Our site setting out engineers carry out their setting out using total station validated grids based on GPS surveying, construction site engineering and public road setting out procedures.

Be it residential housing, office blocks, extensions or structural alterations; mapping out what is required will help avoid expensive errors. This is why at South East Site Engineers we execute as much of the pre-setting out calculation work and point storage as possible at our central London office in Islington Kings Cross before we attend site; resulting in our engineering teams spending a fraction of the time normally required to set out on site.

So, whether you need a setting out surveyor to validate pile setting out in St. Albans or a few setting out engineers London and Southeast based to do the site engineering on a number of different projects every week, feel free to get in touch for a free, friendly and informative no obligation chat.
