INTRODUCTION:

Surveying has been a cornerstone of civil engineering project planning and execution for centuries. To execute anything the first step is to set it out on the site. This set out plan gives the foundation to the upcoming structure. To get this line-out done with least possible tolerance is the real skill of an engineer. To test this skill Nirmitee presents Line ‘Em Out which is an opportunity to budding engineers.
