Landform Surveys can provide a monitoring regime to identify any movement of buildings, structures, earthworks, slopes etc.
Movement can happen due to a number of factors, including ground conditions, structural/foundation failure, instability or erosion.
We collect and accurately measure data using precise levels, accurate to 1/10th of a millimetre, movement gauges, reflectorless total stations, and micrometers.
What is a monitoring survey?
A monitoring survey measures the small changes in vertical and horizontal position, either in real-time or as part of a long-term monitoring project.
What is a monitoring survey used for?
A monitoring survey is used to determine the stability of structures so that architects and engineers can use the data to plan remedial measures.
What are the benefits of a monitoring survey?
While decisions can be made with anecdotal evidence, a professionally produced survey will give you accurate data to know for sure whether or not a structure is shifting. This can give the information you need to be proactive in planning maintenance and preservation work with your structure.
What you can expect from our surveys?
We can offer highly accurate data in regards to the movement of structures that meets your needs. Whether that be in real time or long-term, we can work with you to decide what solution will work best for your project.
