Course Description

This unit of competency specifies the outcomes required to set out spatial data for building or site works using surveying methods and equipment. The unit covers using horizontal and vertical control techniques to set out marks and lines to define the position and level of design points on site. It also covers interpreting plans and specifications in order to conduct measurements and calculations that ensure building elements are the correct size, in the correct plan position, and at the correct reduced level. The unit requires the ability to check and validate measurements and calculations against specifications, and complete set-out documentation.

The unit supports those who work under supervision in a surveying field team.

3. Finalise set-out tasks.


Learning Outcomes

On completion of this course, you should be able to:

1. Prepare for set-out tasks.
1.1 Relevant plans and specifications are accessed and interpreted to identify set-out requirements.
1.2 Equipment is selected and prepared according to set-out and organisational requirements.
1.3 Work is planned in consultation with appropriate persons to ensure correct understanding of set-out activities.

2. Use control techniques for set-out.
2.1 Horizontal control points are located throughout work area and coordinates are set out according to plans and specifications.
2.2 Design points are set out and checked to ensure correct tolerances according to specifications.
2.3 Control points are used and accuracy is checked according to plans and specifications.
2.4 Set-out pegs or markers are used to indicate base lines and offsets relative to work area.
2.5 Vertical control points are established to ensure design points are positioned at correct levels according to plans and specifications.
2.6 Offsets and profiles are put in place to define main lines of building or site works and provide vertical controls.
2.7 Measured surveying data is reduced and calculations are conducted according to industry-accepted standards and organisational requirements.

3. Finalise set-out tasks.
3.1 Measurements are checked and validated to ensure correct size, plan position, and reduced level of set-out according to plans and specifications.
3.2 Discrepancies between specifications and actual activities are identified and addressed or reported according to organisational requirements.
3.3 Set-out is finalised and documentation completed according to organisational requirements.
