Detect the unexpected

Monitor construction sites and infrastructure for stability and risk

Construction monitoring

Jobsite safety requires the continuous monitoring of the stability of the work in process and its adjacent structures. Construction-monitoring systems increase awareness of potential risks and support fact-based decision-making, creating peace of mind for the complete project team.

Structural health monitoring

Observe and measure an asset throughout its lifecycle to determine its physical state and performance against design, at any time. This long-term lifespan monitoring can be instrumental in extending the life of your assets.

Promote jobsite safety

Reliable data collection about the health of infrastructure assets

Cost-effective, time-saving autonomous system

With automated deformation monitoring, you can mitigate risk and implement critical safety protocols with a system that costs less than 1% of the project budget.

Highlight case studies

Brooklyn Highrise Building

A solar-powered, deformation-monitoring setup was used to detect any potential movements of adjacent structures including buildings, piles, and sidewalks during the excavation, piling, and construction of an 81-story structure.

Long Island Railroad Third Track Expansion

Topcon monitoring was deployed to help stakeholders mitigate possible damage to nearby structures during the construction of a 10-mile third track on the busiest commute line in the U.S.

Grand Paris Express Metro

Monitoring was placed on and around hundreds of structures across Paris before and during underground tunneling work on the largest metro system in Europe. For enhanced safety, even a sub-millimeter deformation will trigger an alarm.

Newcastle Tyne Vehicle Tunnel

Construction of a vehicle tunnel on Newcastle’s heavily trafficked Eastside was one of Britain’s biggest transport projects. Construction monitoring of the existing parallel tunnel provided live deformation data that the operator, surveyor, and contractor could access anywhere in the world.
