Structural monitoring involves the ongoing measurement and analysis of factors affecting structures, such as bridges, buildings and other structures. This is used to provide a real-time picture of its condition and structural health.
The smallest of structural changes can make a difference to your structure – or a neighbouring one, so it’s important to identify these as they occur with ongoing structural health monitoring.
Structural monitoring involves closely monitoring the performance of structures and infrastructure such as buildings, bridges, tunnels and railways to ensure their continued safety, stability and structural health.
This type of monitoring is also used extensively to manage construction and infrastructure developments to help to reduce risks and costs and to therefore deliver these projects on time and within budget.
Structural monitoring can take place throughout the life of a structure (before, during and after its construction). It provides continuous reliable, real-time data, to assess if structures are performing safely and efficiently, enabling any maintenance to be planned appropriately.
Our structural health monitoring systems collect data in real-time and instantly send it through to our unique monitoring web portal, Insite. Here, you'll gain valuable insight into the health and condition of your project or structure, enabling you and the team to make subsequent action plans.
Implementing a structural control and health monitoring plan ensures the structure remains safe, protecting against considerable costs and disruption by reducing the risk of any unforeseen issues.
We have a full set of solutions for all structural monitoring requirements and all our monitoring packages are tailored to the requirements of each individual project.

A new solution was needed to provide relief from congestion on an ageing bridge in Widnes. The high profile and complex project required significant temporary works support and we used our expertise to deliver a bespoke propping and monitoring scheme.Find out more
During the tunnelling works for Crossrail, we helped to manage the impact of the works to the busy Canning Town flyover. We designed and delivered a complex system to lift and monitor the structure for any movement.Find out more
Structural failings were identified on Newland Bridge in Yorkshire, carrying the A645 over the River Aire and needed urgent repair. We needed to control the movement of the bridge during repairs, and monitor the effect of the works.Find out more
Tunnelling in London presents many complex engineering challenges. With a maze of existing tunnels, utilities and building foundations to navigate, care and consideration needs to be given. Real-time monitoring allowed the project to go ahead without affecting the surrounding structures.Find out more
