Site Engineering

Primary Control - I am sure your project will require a highly accurate network of primary control setting-out stations, which is why SPW Construction Engineering will be able to provide a helping hand. Having a reliable network of setting out control points is essential to projects of any size, in order to maintain dimensional control and complete all aspects of the finished works to within all specified tolerances. Your primary control network can be referenced to the Ordnance Survey grid or calibrated to suit a local grid specific to an individual project. I only use highly accurate Leica setting out equipment, so you can be confident there will be no issues with unacceptable setting out errors on your initial set up. 

Setting out - Having provided setting out for some of the largest construction companies within the UK, SPW Construction Engineering prides itself on accurate and robust setting-out solutions for projects of all sizes, from small scale buildings to multi million pound developments. I have the skills and experience to set out all aspects of the works from sub structure to super structure and all associated external works, including highways, access roads and drainage. Of course, I am fully experienced with the demands of Quality Management systems and have all necessary Health and Safety training that is required within the construction industry.

Stockpile volumes - A very common requirement for most projects is to determine how much material has been generated and stored in that stockpile in the corner of the site. SPW Construction Engineering certainly has the skills and the technology to determine an answer for you and will produce an accurate volume report along with a fully contoured drawing, which will prove invaluable for your next valuation, or to determine how many lorries are required to get that stockpile moved.

As-built surveys - On completion of various aspects of the project, many clients are now demanding that their contractors provide an as-built survey of the work. SPW Construction Engineering is able to help with production of these surveys, having produced many different types over the years, including fully contoured landscape drawings, housing and commercial developments and, of course, as-built surveys that satisfy the local authorities (e.g. Section 38, 104 and 278 compliant). It may be that you require an as-built survey just for your own personal records? SPW Construction Engineering can provide this for you.
