The most useful and easy to follow book ever written about setting out.

Essential for anyone involved in site survey and setting out of construction projects.

For engineers who want to apply best practice and use the correct methodology in their setting out.

  • Save time
  • Be more productive
  • Keep the correct records
  • Minimise the risk of errors

Ideal for site engineers and students studying site surveying at HNC, HND, or degree level.

Through no fault of their own, many site engineers do not have access to the information they need in an easily digestible format.

We know people want to do the best job they can, but employers either do not realise the importance of the training, or do not have the budget available for it.

We are passionate about this book because it means site engineers can now get access to the critical information they need in one place to enable them to do their job to the best of their ability.

Written in a question and answer format, so you can quickly jump to the question you need an answer to, this book doesn’t just tell you what to do, but exactly how to do it.

It contains:

  • Photos, diagrams and booking examples
  • Tables
  • Worked examples
  • Step-by-step instructions
  • Troubleshooting checklists

Specially tailored for all levels of experience, this book addresses the most common problems encountered by engineers every day on site. Each element is explained from first principles in layman’s terms, making it perfect for beginners as well as experienced engineers who just want to brush up their skills.
