Precise Deformation Monitoring

During excavations phone calls that include the words ‘cracks in the neighbours building’ can send a shiver up your spine (and your insurance companies). Proving liability either way can be expensive and time consuming. A growing part of our work is precise deformation monitoring, which is the measurement of any movement in a structure.

We use our Leica DNA03 digital level with invar staff that is capable of accuracies of 0.3mm per km! This type of accuracy is critical when looking for small movements. It is also critical to begin monitoring before construction or excavation and to have a methodology that will stand up to the rigours of construction (and courts).

Call our team before ‘that’ phone call to discuss your requirements.
