Monitoring surveys, used to identify movement or deformation in a building or structure, provide essential data to determine whether remedial action is needed or to inform the next stage in the building or renovation project.
Very importantly, monitoring gives reassurance that any potential problems can be identified and can be corrected as quickly as possible.
Our specialist team will design, specify, install and carry out monitoring programmes on buildings – from new build to heritage properties – as well as major structures including bridges, sea defences and retaining walls.
Using the latest monitoring technology, we can map small changes in vertical, level and horizontal movement or full 3D XYZ coordinate differences in either real-time or over long periods.
Depending on the project, monitoring can be either manual or automated, with ongoing data produced so that trends or patterns can be identified.
Our range of services also includes environmental monitoring to enable a greater understanding of the role and impact of noise, dust and vibration on both buildings and the wider area. This can be applied to new residential developments, as well as existing commercial, retail, leisure and heritage buildings.
Our monitoring surveyors record and measure the movement or deformation of a building or structure across a broad range of projects. From new build developments through to historic and heritage landmarks, a monitoring scheme can help identify any potential issues within a structure and allow a plan of remediation to be established before further problems develop.
As part of our monitoring division, we can support your project with a range of environmental monitoring services either as an addition to your structural monitoring programmes or as a bespoke package of work.
Asset condition surveys are an ideal solution for assessing the impact of major infrastructure and construction projects on the wider built environment. They can help establish whether there has been any consequential damage to neighbouring buildings or structures during the work by carrying out pre- and post-construction surveys.
