Automatic Monitoring

GEO-Instruments install all types of Geotechnical and Structural Instrumentation. Our Engineers provide the method statements, risk assessments and on site supervision for the installation. Using accredited drilling companies for drilling, we install and commission instrumentation using our own installers and engineers. We provide a total service to our clients including monitoring action plans for and setting up on line site views do that the data can be monitored. Our sites range from 6 measuring points to 40,000. We treat each job with a professional approach from start to finish.

GEO and MGS Geosense are technology partners for instrumentation supply. We can supply the full instrumentation package for our clients and design bespoke instrumentation for projects.

GEO-Instruments have installed deep instrumentation on restricted sites, with diameters ranging from 100mm to 240mm, up to depths of 70m. We can also manage SI Borehole works and deep datum installations. 

Our experience in installing Automated Instrumentation includes:

  • Mems IPI & Shape Array - Along with the installation of casing and commissioning before automation
  • Single and Multi Point Piezometers
  • Multipoint Auto Extensometers 
  • Deep Datums
  • Fibre Optic Strain Guages and Piezometers
  • In Pile and Diaphragm Wall IPIs and Shape Array  
  • Prop Strain Gauges 
  • SCL pressure pads
  • Crackmeters
  • Tiltmeters  (Biaxial and Triaxial )
  • Track Monitoring (Twist and Cant)
  • Noise, Vibration and Acoustic Meters 

Geotechnical Instrumentation benefits every construction phase as seen below:


  • Determines the initial site conditions and confirms Laboratory testing results.

During Construction

  • Observation of Method
  • Construction Control
  • Provide Legal Protection
  • Enhancing Public Relations
  • Measurement of Quantities
  • Increasing Knowledge for future projects.

Post Construction

  • Loading and performance.
