SETTING OUT SURVEYS

WHAT IS A SETTING OUT SURVEY?

Setting out is a survey process that puts the design and dimensions of a proposed construction project marked on the ground.

It involves transferring the building design and alignment from architectural plans to the actual land or current built environment where the construction will take place. The setting out survey takes place once the architect’s plans have been finalized, and data from a topographic survey has been collected.

The purpose of a setting out survey is to accurately position the key elements of the construction project on the ground. This includes marking the positions of building lines, road alignments, foundation locations, and other essential features according to the construction plans. The surveyor uses various techniques and instruments to establish these positions and levels on the ground.

Setting out surveys are crucial to ensure that the construction project is built in the correct location and alignment according to the design specifications. By accurately marking the positions on the ground, setting out surveys help contractors and construction teams to work with precision and avoid errors during construction1. It allows for accurate placement of foundations, walls, columns, and other elements of the structure, ensuring that the construction aligns correctly with the design plans1.

Overall, a setting out survey is a vital step in the construction process, ensuring that the proposed design is accurately translated to the physical site, and providing a reliable guide for construction teams to follow.
