When the time comes to begin building your new residential or commercial property, it is necessary to have complete confidence that the plan you have on paper is what gets built. At Stacey Surveying, we offer building set outs that help determine the viability of your plans and ensure they can be brought to life as they should be. Using either nails in stakes or paling fences, the setting out survey procedure involves setting out the building lines to make sure the property is built in the correct location and with accurately dimensioned walls. Each line is clearly labelled for ease of construction.
A building set out survey is necessary when building any structure, from small homes to large commercial high rises. They’re also needed when building a road, tunnel or bridge, or when adding an extension to an existing structure.
Building and house set outs in Melbourne assist builders by providing them with the legal boundaries they have to work within, minimising the risk of disputes arising later on. A set out survey also allows construction workers to build exactly to the plan.
The cost of a set out survey can vary depending on factors such as the size and purpose of the land. Stacey Surveying can provide you with an accurate cost estimate once you discuss your needs with our team.
As an additional service to building set outs, Finished Floor Levels (FFLs) are provided shown with a clearly marked nail in a steady fence post or similar. Other required levels can also be provided, such as cut and fill markers. Please see our Resources page for an example survey.
