This can be done using timber with a sand haunching to keep it in place while the non-shrink grout is poured. Leave space around the perimeter, so the grout can be seen emerging from the opposite side and rise to the level required.
Pour the non-shrink grout into a hopper. Do not move the hopper and pour from any other location, because this can lead to air-pockets forming beneath the plate, meaning the loading from the steel will not be transferred evenly to the structure beneath. A hopper is especially useful if the baseplate is large and the non-shrink grout has to flow a long distance. It builds a head of pressure that forces the grout beneath the plate at an even rate.
Before the grout has gone off completely cut back the exposed corners to create a neat chamfer.
