Building Set-Out Surveys

A Building Set-Out Survey assists you in keeping your construction and developments within your legal property boundaries. They also help your contractors and builders accurately follow your designs and plans, as you can provide them with precise Building Set-Out Surveys.


What is a Building Set-Out Survey?

A Set-Out Survey places your building design onto a precise survey of the land. Builders, engineers, architects and more can follow a Set-Out Survey for a streamlined construction and/or development process.

Key aspects of your design are established, and markers are set down by the survey to guide the building process. A Building Set-Out Survey in NZ can assist you right from levelling the site, to pouring the foundation, and even through to finished floor heights if needed.
