Site Engineering
and Setting Out

Our setting out engineers and surveyors have a wealth of knowledge and experience when it comes to surveying engineering data. Our endeavours range from a single plot for a self-build developer to multiple plots on behalf of volume housing developers or major infrastructure and construction projects.

Working to the standards outlined in the RICS Measured Surveys of Land, Buildings and Utilities, 3rd Edition, Centara provides engineering surveys throughout construction projects, providing accurate and vital information. Our services include setting, monitoring and measuring lines and levels for all elements and stages of the construction process, including:

  • pile and strip foundations
  • buildings (residential and commercial)
  • steelwork (bolts, bolt boxes, foundations, etc.)
  • kerb lines
  • roads
  • drainage (manholes, gullies, slot drains, etc.)
  • walls (retaining and boundary, etc.)
  • boundary lines
  • road markings
  • monitoring to maintain accurate control
  • deformation monitoring.

Construction can introduce issues with settlement and movement. Our engineers are equipped to monitor all subtle movements of the construction.

All our setting-out engineers hold valid and up-to-date CSCS and Safety Passports qualifications, as well as industry-specific competencies, to ensure we are ready to work in a wide range of site environments.

Post-construction phase: as-built surveying

Our engineers complete the final topographical survey, which can be done in stages or at the end of each task. We use the latest robotic TPS equipment or 3D laser scanners to measure the detail the client requires in line with RICS standards. We provide underground utility mapping to ensure the utilities are to the designed coordinates and level. Construction can introduce issues with settlement and our engineers are equipped to monitor the movement of the construction if an issue is suspected. Our geomatics engineers are currently providing clients with vital services on challenging sites throughout the UK, including high voltage substations.
