Monitoring for construction sites
The complete solution for monitoring in a construction environment
Deformation monitoring provides real-time information about movements and allows informed decisions based on facts, which bring not only protection to people and structures, but can also contribute to optimisation of operations during construction.
The combination of data from geodetic monitoring sensors (total stations, GNSS or levels) with geotechnical and environmental sensors (tilt sensors, strain gauges, weather stations, etc.), delivers the complete picture about the movements happening in real time.
When is monitoring beneficial on construction sites?
- To aid during construction process: verticality and alignment monitoring is an absolute must during high-rise building construction process to validate designs in addition to measurement of excavation areas to determine the amount of ground and structural movement.
- To protect the surrounding area: disturbance of ground during the construction process may cause movements to surrounding buildings or structures. Whether it’s a new building or civil engineering/heavy construction project, the surrounding area needs to be monitored to understand movements, thus information regarding deformation of assets can be analysed.
- Structural health monitoring: every new building and/or structure changes as construction progresses, changing its dynamics therefore structural health information is beneficial at every phase of the project.
- To assess the natural movements: the Earth’s surface is constantly moving and flexing, especially in areas near water or without solid substratum. Therefore, it’s essential to distinguish the natural movements from the movements caused by construction.
This video presents typical generic examples of monitoring installations on a construction site, yet every monitoring project requires its own specifically assessed and designed monitoring system thus specialists should be consulted before any installation.
