What is a Building Set Out and When Do I Need It?


A Building Set Out, also known as a Construction Set-out, is a crucial service conducted at the early stages of a construction project. In this process, our surveyors transfer your building design onto the land itself, establishing key points and markers that guide the construction. This involves defining the boundaries of excavation, the wall's center line, and construction gridlines, ensuring your project aligns perfectly with your plans.

You would typically need a Building Set Out service when you're about to start a new construction project or an extension to an existing building. This service is equally crucial for small-scale residential projects and large commercial developments. It ensures that your construction aligns with your approved designs, helping to avoid potential design flaws and legal disputes. It also provides your construction team with a clear guide to follow, ensuring the finished building matches your vision and complies with all regulations.


Whether you're planning to build a new home, extend your commercial property, or develop a larger parcel of land, our Building Set Out service at MG Land Surveyors provides the accuracy, clarity, and peace of mind you need.
