About this book

This practical pocket book provides concise guidance on the procedures for setting out most forms of building and civil engineering works. Based on years of practical experience, these procedures apply to the majority of construction sites. Setting-out Procedures for the Modern Built Environment aims to reduce the risk of errors in setting out by giving easy-to-follow steps, hints and tips. Topics are divided into techniques for setting out and specific applications. Text is presented as bullet points accompanied by explicit diagrams. The second edition is right up-to-date with current practice, particularly in the use of electronic instruments and aspects of quality control and safety. No site engineer should be without a copy.
