Excavations & Retaining Walls

Excavations & Retaining Walls

Monitoring retaining structures such as excavations is key in guaranteeing safety and predicting the dynamic behaviour of the surrounding ground. It also helps avoid overly conservative design approaches, and acts as a guideline to ensure that design conditions are met. Early warning signs can be detected by monitoring systems activating trigger alarms for measured quantities.

By measuring displacements in retaining structures, our monitoring solutions provide assurance of structural stability. Instrumentation tailored towards tilt, deflection, stress and strain is typically used to assess these types of structure and their surrounding ground.
