There are dozens of text books available on surveying, but they’re generally very academic and only have a small section on setting out for construction works. They also tend to be pretty cumbersome in terms of size and weight, not to mention price!
So, I’m busy working on a book on setting out which will be aimed specifically at Site Engineers. It will cover everything that a Site Engineer or Setting Out Engineer needs to know. It will be the same size as your yellow survey book so that you can easily carry it about and will contain practical information, loads of examples and diagrams, tips, tricks and summaries. Sign up to our mailing list if you’d like to be kept up to date about the book launch.
I’m swithering on the title so I’m not announcing that until the cover design is complete so let me ask you for your advice…..
If you could buy the perfect book on setting out, what would it be called?!
What would be the top three most important things you would want to be included in the book?
