Setting out


Setting Out is one of the most critical elements of the entire construction process and can make or break whether a project makes money or is completed on time.

The aim of Setting Out for Construction is to raise the standards of setting out across the UK by making best practice normal practice.

It is our belief that every engineer has a desire to do the best job they possibly can and be proud of their work.

Our job is to provide setting out engineers with the information, training and skills they need and to educate those not directly involved in setting out about the importance of the role of the setting out engineer.


We provide  training for students, site engineers and anyone who would like to get involved in setting out. Our training is employer focused and is based on the most common and useful setting out tasks used every day on site.

To us, setting out is not simply about a body of knowledge which dictates the industry standard best practice. It is also about focus, skill, organisation, communication, confidence, engineering judgement and high quality decision making.


The services we offer are designed in line with our beliefs and with the specific purpose of helping us achieve our aims:
