Monitoring surveys are the precise method of surveying structures or features which are thought to be moving, or if there is a possibility of movement. This is done by repeatedly checking these structures or features to determine if there is any movement. If there is any movement, we then can quantify this and turn it into a report for our clients.
Another common application of monitoring surveys are to monitor if there is any deflection or deformation to structures due to a new load being added. For example, adding a floor or two to a building or adding a support beam to a bridge.
The movement in structures or features can be due to site ground works or even due to natural ground movements and settlement over time. By identifying movement in structures and applying the corrective measures, maintenance costs can be reduced and accidents avoided.
At Ryder Geospatial, we offer highly accurate data to all of our clients about their structures when availing of our monitoring surveys.
