SE's role/specing SE

Recommended Posts

We are going the SIPS route with the supplier doing their own engineering for the kit. The groundworkers' SE can do everything we need for setting out. What else do we need? If nothing else, neither can do the SER (we're in Scotland) so does anyone know the likelihood of finding someone else to do the sign-of if other engineers have done the work?

Your perhaps better engaging your own SE 

While the ground workers may or may not use an Engineer for setting He or she will not be a SE and won’t be qualified to do foundation and general load calcs

Thanks. Definitely a qualified SE but one who specialises in 'setting out'. And at £125/visit (with '3 to 4 tops' required I'm told) which is a lot cheaper than commissioning an SE for the full lot even when they're not doing the structure - but only if there's not a lot else I need them for and someone else will do the SER for a turn.
