Surveying Equipment:


AJB Setting Out Limited has invested in equipment and now owns and operates the latest Robotic Total Station and Field Controller from Topcon. The advantage of operating a Robotic Total Station means that there is no requirement for an assistant to complete setting out tasks and surveying.


All instruments are regularly calibrated and maintained in accordance with the manufacturers tolerances and specification, in accordance with the laboratory accreditation requirements of both the United Kingdom Accreditation Service and ISO 17025. Calibration certificates are available on request and presented at the time of site induction.
