We provide a specialist movement monitoring service at economic rates
Subsidence Monitoring was established in 2006 to provide specialist movement monitoring to the insurance sector. Since we started, the services we offer have increased to include structural monitoring during pilling, or deep excavation and many more bespoke monitoring projects.
Crack Monitoring is the precise measurement of a crack using a set of digital callipers measuring to a one hundredth of a millimetre. We affix stainless steel studs using strong glue (so none intrusive easily removed) and measure the distance between the centre holes of the studs. This data is recorded and repeated periodically to confirm if a crack is opening or closing.
Level Monitoring is a process of monitoring the foundation movement in a structure to precise levels. Level monitoring is a more expensive form of monitoring than crack monitoring, but can provide more in-depth results as to when, how and how much a foundation of a building is moving.
All of our surveys are carried out using fully trained experienced surveyors using Leica total station 1” instruments. Over the past 10 years we have monitored hundreds of properties undergoing deep excavations for basements or other high impact construction works using 3-dimensional retro target monitoring.
