The course gives a strong emphasis on understanding construction plans, dimensions, datums, survey marks, accuracies, elevations and layouts to enable all participants to confidently appreciate the works scope and detail.
Basic measurements, offsetting and marking out for construction works are discussed and demonstrated. Understanding with field exercises using levelling equipment and level reductions to establish design heights gives field staff new skills.
The course reinforces field checking, recording, basic calculations and good survey techniques.
