- Structural & Basement Monitoring
Structural & Basement Monitoring
Buildings and structures move for a variety of reasons and are especially at risk during demolition, basement construction and structural alteration.
At SMSS we work closely with stakeholders to design and implement appropriate monitoring schemes to target critical areas.
Targeted monitoring helps architects, engineers, and designers, to pro-actively manage their projects and reassure all affected parties including neighbours that works are progressing in a safe and well-managed nature.Contact SMSS

State of the Art Equipment and Techniques
Using state of art equipment and techniques we are able to help design bespoke monitoring schemes for our clients, targeting specific areas where movements are likely to occur.
We help with interpretation of the results to sort the wheat from the chaff to confirm whether movements are due to:
- Scatter effects
- Foundation movement
- Deflection of supporting structures
- Design assumptions
