All of these features are set out using robotic and Reflectorless Total Stations. We use the well known Leica instruments for our surveys, which provides you with accurate information.
Setting out is used for:
Your construction & operation team will use our service to help you deliver the works by your construction drawings.
The preferred guidance note that Icelabz Survey Ltd uses is the Measured Surveys of Land, Buildings and Utilities (3rd Edition), which can be bought at RICS shop for £40.
At Icelabz Survey Ltd, we pride ourselves in our systems to get you the best result in your survey. The following process is a guide on understanding how to engage a site engineer for your project.
The first step is to gather all the information about your project and your business so that we can allocate the right engineer for the right job. We also gather any time constraints for your construction project so that we know when we can send our engineers on site.
We then internally review the specifications and requirements for the projects so that we know what we’ll need to provide on the day. Some of our clients provide us with equipment, and some don’t. Don’t worry we can get these in and wrap it up in our shift rate.
We provisionally book our engineers and equipment so that we can mobilise on site quickly.
We send you the quotation and specification by email for your approval. If you have any queries, our project managers will get in touch with you to make sure you get what you need for your project.
Once you have accepted our quotation, we make arrangement to send our engineering surveyors on the site.
On-site our site engineers will get inducted by your team, briefed about the job at hand and they will start setting up their instrument to start. If you do not have any control points, we can set it up for you. Our engineers will start marking out the points, lines and anchor points for your construction team to work on. These coordinates as set out will be recorded for quality purposes and may be sent to you for your records.
Additionally we can also capture the works completed by your engineers on site so that you can provide as-built data for your hand over documents. If you do not have a CAD technician, we can overlay them on your drawings as a post-process each day, week, or, month or at the end of the works.
Once the project on the site is completed for us, we will provide any deliverables requested for you to keep.
Typical costs can vary from £210/shift to £450/shift depending on your requirements and resource allocated for your project. You can get a quote from us by calling us on 0203 744 3020, emailing us, or filling the form on this page.
At Icelabz Survey, we keep a record of all of our setting out coordinates for quality assurance purposes. The standard output you will get from the setting out service is marked features on hard or soft surfaces using spray paint, survey nails, pegs, or ground anchors.
However, you may request the as-set out coordinates, and as-built works marked out on AutoCAD on a daily, weekly, monthly or once at the end of the works for your quality records.
