A building or house set out refers to the process of accurately transferring the design and layout of a building or house onto the actual construction site. It involves marking the precise locations of various structural elements, such as walls, columns, foundations, and utilities, as per the architectural and engineering plans. Set out ensures that the construction aligns with the intended design and dimensions. Experienced surveyors utilize advanced surveying instruments and techniques to accurately establish the positions, angles, and elevations of these elements on the ground. This process is crucial to ensure the proper execution of the construction project, enabling builders and contractors to follow the design specifications with precision and accuracy. Building or house set out plays a vital role in achieving the desired outcome and facilitating a smooth construction process.

A title re-establishment survey is a specialized survey conducted to determine and verify the boundaries and dimensions of a property as described in its title deed or legal documentation. This type of survey is typically required when there are uncertainties, disputes, or discrepancies regarding the property boundaries. The surveying team carefully researches the historical records, existing surveys, and legal documents related to the property to gather relevant information. Using advanced surveying techniques and equipment, they then physically measure and mark the boundary lines on the ground. The purpose of a title re-establishment survey is to accurately establish the true boundaries of the property, providing clarity and resolving any potential boundary-related issues. This survey is important for property owners, potential buyers, and legal matters involving property rights and land ownership.

The accuracy of a land survey depends on various factors, including the surveying techniques used, the equipment employed, and the expertise of the surveying team. A professional land survey conducted by experienced surveyors utilizing state-of-the-art instruments can typically achieve a high level of accuracy. The precision of a land survey is typically measured in terms of tolerances, which specify the maximum allowable deviation from the true measurements. Depending on the purpose of the survey, different tolerances may be required. For example, boundary surveys typically have tighter tolerances than topographic surveys. It’s important to note that no survey is entirely free from error, as factors like environmental conditions and natural obstacles can introduce slight variations. However, reputable surveying firms strive to minimize errors and provide surveys that meet industry standards, ensuring a reliable and accurate representation of the land’s features and boundaries.

On an “new” subdivision (<15 years old), we require a minimum of 3 visible and correct boundary pegs on site. On an “old” subdivision (>15 years old), a title re-establishment survey will be required, with the boundaries marked. If you have an acreage site we may be able to complete the set out using the fencing as an approximation of the boundary position.

A set out plan is a specialized service offered by our land surveying business, designed to assist with complex construction projects such as units, split-level houses, houses with basements, and more. It involves the precise marking and positioning of key elements on the site, ensuring accurate and proper placement during the construction process. Our experienced surveyors utilize advanced techniques and equipment to create set out plans that guide builders and contractors in executing the project as intended. These plans outline the exact locations, dimensions, and elevations of various features, such as foundations, walls, columns, and utilities. While we specialize in complex set outs, we also offer set out plans for any project upon request. Our team is dedicated to delivering tailored solutions to meet your specific needs, providing clear instructions and guidance for efficient and accurate construction.

The Australian Height Datum (AHD) is a vertical reference system used in land surveying and mapping across Australia. It provides a standard benchmark for measuring and recording elevations, ensuring consistency and accuracy in height measurements nationwide. The Australian Height Datum (AHD) was established by assigning a value of 0.000m to mean sea level from 1966-1968 at 30 tide gauges around the coast of Australia. Surveyors use leveling techniques to establish height measurements relative to the AHD, allowing for precise determination of elevations for various purposes, including construction, floodplain management, and infrastructure development. The AHD plays a crucial role in ensuring uniformity and compatibility of height measurements across different regions of Australia, facilitating seamless collaboration and accurate interpretation of elevation data.

Computer-aided drafting (CAD) is a powerful technology used in land surveying that enables precise and efficient creation, modification, and analysis of digital drawings. Through specialized software, CAD allows surveyors to generate accurate and detailed maps, plans, and technical drawings by employing a range of tools and functionalities. It enhances the surveying process by automating repetitive tasks, ensuring greater accuracy, and facilitating seamless collaboration among team members. CAD systems enable surveyors to incorporate field data, such as measurements and coordinates, and produce highly accurate and professional drawings that aid in decision-making, construction, and land development projects.

A total station is a sophisticated electronic instrument widely used in land surveying that combines the functionalities of a theodolite and an electronic distance measuring device (EDM). It plays a crucial role in accurately measuring angles, distances, and elevations for surveying and mapping purposes. The total station consists of a telescope, EDM, and a data processing unit. It enables surveyors to precisely measure horizontal and vertical angles by aiming the telescope at specific targets and simultaneously recording distance measurements using the EDM. The collected data can be stored, processed, and analyzed in real-time, allowing for efficient fieldwork and the generation of accurate survey measurements and maps. The total station is a versatile and indispensable tool that enhances the speed and accuracy of land surveying operations.

A survey prism, also known as a surveying prism or reflector prism, is a crucial tool used in land surveying for measuring and determining precise positions, angles, and distances. It consists of a glass or plastic prism mounted on a target or holder, often attached to a pole or tripod. The prism has reflective surfaces that allow it to reflect light back to the surveying instrument, such as a total station or theodolite. By measuring the angles and distances between the instrument and the prism, surveyors can accurately calculate the location and elevation of the prism, which in turn provides valuable information for mapping, construction layout, and other surveying tasks. The survey prism is an essential component in ensuring accurate and reliable measurements in land surveying projects.
