Monitoring surveys are the systematic measuring of fixed points over any length of time and is often required where the structure in question requires on going checking. This could be in height, plan or both.
Monitoring visits are manned by surveyors, with systems set up to provide checks on potential observational errors – making sure false alarms are not raised and with the latest range in high accuracy equipment Spatial Dimensions are in a great position to be able to deliver the results of any monitoring task.
When Spatial Dimensions attend monitoring surveys for the first time we are well aware that any successful project is dependent on a stable base and will install permanent control stations which will be measured and adjusted in a way that ensures repeatability and the high level of accuracy that is demanded by these surveys. All of our subsequent measurements are then based on this stable control network allowing confidence in the repeatability of the project. It is important to us that the client is as confident in the data as we are.
Deliverables such as;
- Real time movement reports
- Tabulated differences in height and plan
- 3d CAD drawings
- Isopachyte contours to show surface deviations (see also verticality surveys)
- 3D scan clouds for complex surfaces (see also verticality surveys)
are all possible and as no project is ever the same they can be refined for your specific requirements.
Projects such as reservoir dams, building facades, railway arches, ships in dry dock, listed walls and structures, highway embankments and retaining walls are all examples of monitoring that have been undertaken by Spatial Dimensions surveyors and our experienced staff are well equipped to ensure that we deliver the results you need.
We use Integrated Leica Total Stations to capture data either in 2D or 3D with the output in a range of formats.
Our monitoring surveys will be completed in accordance with the RICS Specification Surveys of Land, Building and Utility Services of scales of 1:500 or larger.
Our Quality Assurance team checks and verifies every drawing before it is sent out to our clients. We pride ourselves on delivering an outstanding client service and we have always delivered an excellent customer satisfaction rating for this service.
