Engineering Survey is that branch of survey that is concern with the setting out of the spatial position of engineering design such as buildings, roads, drains etc.

Surveyor will do calculation based on designs by architects or engineering to determine the horizontal and vertical position of the structures such as building, roads or drains. The information calculated are coordinates and elevation of the setting out points.


Basing on the calculated information, Surveyor will mark the points on ground which can then be used for the construction of the structures. For buildings, Surveyors usually mark the grid lines. For roads and drains, Surveyors usually mark the center line of the roads or drains. Where they are piling to be done, Surveyors will mark the piling points.

Although Engineering Surveys are mainly carried out for building and civil construction works, it is also required in construction of large structures such as ships, oil rigs etc.
