GEO-Instruments can provide monitoring solutions for all types of infrastructure. This includes activities above ground such as building construction, demolition, bridge and road monitoring as well as services underground in tunnels, sewers and other environments.
Infrastructure monitoring enables structural management of assets being built or demolished, providing direct insight into their behaviour and any effects on surrounding structures.
Our complementary above and underground infrastructure monitoring solutions allow GEO-Instruments to cover all monitoring and data acquisition requirements on any project.
As GEO-Instruments provides a full monitoring package and all the data is gathered in a single platform, all the different parameters relating to site activity can be cross-referenced against time and amplitude to improve understanding of the site effects.
Infrastructure monitoring typically runs for the duration of a critical activity on site, but can also run for longer periods to monitor the behaviour of a building and understand the effects of differential settlement.
Monitoring can be achieved using a wide variety of sensors and techniques, such as displacement sensors and manual surveying, all of which can be customised to meet the requirements of the site and the client.
To target the specific parameters required, we can install sensors inside buildings, on their façade or in basements. A combination of several methods is often preferred to offer redundancy and a means of validating the accuracy of the values logged on site.
