FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is this service?
By this service you are provided with a fully prepared GPS Equipment with continuous support so you can do most of the Setting Out on your own without hiring a Full-Time Setting Out Engineer on your site.
This option can be an ideal replacement of permanent Setting Out Engineer at the following tasks:
Where is this service available?
Wherever you have GPS Signal (practically the whole UK is covered) you can harvest its benefits. There are objects, however, like large trees, high buildings around which can significantly reduce the power of the signal from satellites. Before we start working on your job, we will check the area on Google Earth and might ask you to send us some pictures about the actual site. In case we cannot decide whether this service could work for sure on your site we investigate further and only offer this for you when we are sure that it works. CSI SouthEast Ltd is based in Wokingham, Berkshire. On distant sites, mileage might apply for the delivery, setup and training.
Why is this good for me?
By hiring our equipment you can reduce the need for Site Engineer presence significantly on your site and still having access to our expert Site Engineer colleagues in case of any query. That means lower cost without sacrificing anything, especially the access to the accurate positions of proposed objects on site.
Why is it better than a full-time engineer?
The Setting Out Engineer is the link between the design layouts and the real world. Their instruments and knowledge make them capable to give you the lines/point you need from the drawings.
Having a highly educated person on site is always expensive, not to mention that you depend on someone, their availability. You cannot work until they provide the information on site you need. Most of the time, especially at the beginning of the construction project you need only rough information, i.e. building outline, car park area for the welfare unit, piling mat, etc. where accuracy is not necessarily crucial. You still need to hire someone with the ability of a couple of mm accuracy because there has not been any other option so far.
CSI SouthEast has been working on many construction sites in the past years and kept working on giving the ability to their partners to work confidently even without our presence. We worked out the safest way for you to have access to everything you need immediately, without waiting time.
What education do I have to have to use it?
No worries. We have built up a system in the past years so we can do the hard work for you. No special education necessary to use this service.
Your Foreman can grab the kit and start working immediately with it after a short training.
What do I get for my money?
The service is added together by two parts.
HARDWARE (delivered to your site, setup and training):
SUPPORT SERVICES (ongoing):
What type of jobs is it good for?
Generally speaking, it’s good for any job conducted under the clear sky, where GPS signals can be received. It can be the most beneficial for Groundworker and Landscaping companies but, thanks to its accuracy, it can be used even by RC Frame contractors.
During the past years, we realised that the most difficult thing is to be confident on a site where there is nothing yet. There is no line to relate the building to, etc. Using this service means that you can be confident day by day, you can get familiar with the site faster than ever before. We also provide ‘anchors’ where you can go back anytime and check them whenever you are in doubt. We are also here for you in case you have a question. We can log in, see the screen you see and show you through the answer.
What accuracy can I achieve?
Accuracy depends on many things.
When we know the task you need this service for, we advise you what type of antenna would be ideal for the job. Also, by having the drawings we can tell you if there is anything wrong with them so you would know the achievable accuracy before you start using the kit.
How is this accurate on my site?
Every site starts with our Engineers’ job. We come to your site and just like any other Engineer would do we cross-check many things by using Total Stations besides the GPS Antenna. Once we finished and would be ready to work as Setting Out Engineer we set the GPS Antenna up for you instead. From that moment on it shows you everything accurately on the site. We also check whether we would mark exactly the same points by Total Station than you by using the GPS Rover.
Once the Site is set up and the Rover is ready to go, we go through the training part with your appointed colleague(s). After this part is done they will know what and how they can use. Do not worry if you cannot memorise everything by the first run. Whenever you’re stuck, just give us a call and will help you through in minutes.
How do I manage the drawings?
Anytime you have a newer revision of any imported drawings or you need a new drawing to be available on the controller too, just give us a call and we will sort it out. It usually takes about an hour but we guarantee you to have the new revision on your controller within 24 hours.
How is this “failsafe”?
We did everything we could to minimise the risk of wrongdoing.
What if I’m stuck? Is there any support? How?
Despite we try to provide everything on the clearest way it’s inevitable to have questions during the process. The solution is delivered via the Internet.
The equipment you have is one of the latest one so we have many options.
99% of occasions the problem can be solved online. In case we cannot sort it out remotely, we will come to you and fix it within 48 hours.
You do not have to have any extra hardware/software. Everything is preinstalled and prepared on the kit you receive from us. You are never going to be left without help.
What if I need to be more accurate?
When you have to have more accurate Setting Out than the GPS antenna can provide, you can call us for an Engineer to do it for you.
We can come and conduct the Setting Out and As-Built Surveys.
What if I have design query? I used to ask the Engineer
CSI SouthEast is not an equipment-hiring company. We do not only provide you the kit, we are offering fully equivalet solution to replace the Setting Out Engineer so we are available for design queries too.
Give us a call and we can go through them with you. Having connected via Skype we can share our screen with you to see the same drawing and discuss about the problem just like we were standing next to each other and pointing our finger on the drawing.
Every job is different.
Get in touch with us to choose the best method and hardware for your job.
