Supporting high rise construction by use of geospatial sensors

17 Oct 2019
Geospatial Theatre

Join this session to better understand how you can provide better geospatial certainty by delivering precise data for construction engineers. This session will focus on the challenges we see on future high-rise building construction and how we can solve these by providing sensor data on settlement, shrinkage, deformation, position and final as-built records.

Beside the automatic monitoring of environmental parameters, such as vibration, noise and dust, we also provide all other monitoring data required. We are often called when construction works could potential impact on existing structures such as viaducts, bridges, railroads or tunnels. We provide sensor equipment for deformation and settlement monitoring and carry out the installation and maintenance of such systems. We are on the forefront of technological developments with over 4000 wireless sensors installed over the last 5 years. Further, we have worked with suppliers to make laser scan monitoring usable in the construction environment and were first to use these technologies to monitor whole building facades, roads and tunnels without the need to attach reflectors or sensors across the structure.  The laser scan point cloud can also provide as-built information which we extract as BIM with the required Level of Detail.

In this presentation, we will look at the methodology and technologies used when it comes to high-rise construction or similar projects including GPS/GNSS and other sensors to monitor the swaying of high-rise buildings and provide automatic setting out of structural segments.
