There are various types of set out surveys that a surveyor can perform. Some of the common types include: 

  • Building set out survey: It involves marking out the exact location of a proposed building on the site. The surveyor will use pegs and string lines to mark the position of the building’s corners and walls, ensuring that it is constructed in the correct location.
  • Road set out survey: It involves marking the location of a proposed road on a site. This type of survey is essential for road construction projects to ensure that the road is built in the correct location and meets the required standards and regulations.
  • Utility set out survey: This type of survey involves marking the location of utility services such as water, gas, electricity, and telecommunications on a site. The surveyor will mark the position of underground pipes and cables to ensure that they are not damaged during construction.
  • Boundary set out survey: This type of survey involves marking the boundaries of a property. The surveyor will use existing boundary markers, such as fences or walls, or install new ones to mark the property’s boundaries accurately.
  • Earthworks set out survey: It involves marking the position of excavations, fill, and grading on a site. This type of survey is essential for earthworks projects such as site preparation, landscaping, and road construction.
