At SES, we combine years of professional expertise with the latest technology, to produce survey solutions that are accurate, always meet specification standards and provide the appropriate level of support for your project, large or small.

From initial site formation, foundations and service trenches, through to brickwork corners and holding down bolts, our engineers are equipped and experienced to set out pretty much anything. Setting out is what we do, so look no further.

Our CAD-based methods of data extraction produce error-free setting out. We only work from AutoCAD drawings, but we also have software to convert pdfs into AutoCAD if that is the only format available. We pride ourselves in producing clear and accurate setting out and briefing the site guys on exactly what our pins/lines mean so that there are no queries once we have left site.


We can work from co-ordinates, annotated drawings or AutoCAD to provide high quality, accurate survey data, no matter how complex the design. Our surveyors take data and pinpoint positions, setting out features from pileworks and drainage, to above ground features such as brickwork and stud walls. We use GPS systems, giving us real-time coordinates from National Ordnance Survey data, total station or digital levelling techniques so that, whatever the size of your project, the result is always precise, accurate and carried out to your deadline.

From single building residential projects, major buildings like hotels, hospitals, commercial warehouse buildings to full on housing estates. We have the right skillset and appropriate technology to carry out setting out surveys that meet all quality assurance standards. For small projects, we can offer mobile teams that visit your site as and when required, and for larger projects, we can set up a fully computerised office to support your staff, and any subcontractors, through the entire setting out process to minimise the risk of problems.
