GEO-Instruments design and install monitoring systems based on a wide range of geotechnical instrumentation.

Strain gauges
Geotechnical instrumentation - Strain guages

Common uses

Determining site conditions
Construction control
Monitoring loading and performance
Long-term deformation monitoring


Where applicable we use accredited drilling companies for groundworks and our own engineers for in ground and structural installations.

GEO-Instruments source, supply and install the following solutions:

  • Inclinometers (Manual, Mems IPI)
  • Single and Multi-Point Piezometers
  • Multipoint Auto Extensometers
  • Deep Datums
  • Fibre Optic Piezometers and Strain Gauges
  • In Pile and Diaphragm Wall IPIs 
  • Prop Strain Gauges
  • Crack meters

Geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring has benefits during all phases of construction. In early stages it can be essential for determining initial site conditions and confirming laboratory testing results. During construction it is used to enable the site team to guide construction, enhance communication with stakeholders and help provide value engineering.

Post construction, the long-term performance of the ground or structure can be monitored and evalated using Geotechnical Instrumentation & Monitoring.

Collected geotechnical data is invaluable to designers and engineers for developing more efficient designs and construction methods.
