Whether bridges, tunnels or railways, our country’s infrastructure is subject to wear and deterioration. Monitoring the behaviour of these assets is key to ensuring they remain in good structural health and can continue to operate safely.
Monitoring the behaviour of our infrastructure and their surrounding areas ensures that any changes can be observed as they occur. This helps to inform engineers and inspectors about the condition of a structure.
Condition based maintenance plans can then be put in place before any serious damage is caused, replacing schedule driven maintenance.
Some of the most common applications for monitoring infrastructure assets are:
The wide range of instruments that make up our structural monitoring solutions collect data in real-time and instantly send it through to our unique web portal, Insite.
Here, our customers are able to gain valuable insight about their project or structure, enabling them to create subsequent action plans. This ensures a structure remains safe and protects against considerable costs and disruption.
We have a full set of solutions for all structural monitoring situations and all our monitoring packages are tailored to the requirements of each individual project.
Factors such as nearby construction activities or environmental conditions can affect the safe and continuous use of a railway.Find out how our rail monitoring solutions can help
Increasing rates of traffic and the subsequent load strain it causes, in conjunction with general fatigue, can lead to unpredictable bridge failures.Find out how our bridge monitoring solutions can help
Our major road networks are another key part of our countries infrastructure. Keeping them running is paramount, and continued, proactive maintenance is key.Find out how our monitoring solutions can help
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
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
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
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
When a lorry smashed into one of the main supports beneath a bridge over the M6 in Lancashire, the structural integrity of the bridge was severely compromised. Our emergency response team were called in to provide a propping and jacking solution to quickly support the bridge.Find out more
Junction 6 of the M6 motorway, commonly known as spaghetti junction, is famous for very heavy traffic. When it was at risk of collapse, we quickly stabilised and propped the motorway section to prevent it, whilst minimising any disruption to the M6.Find out more
Continuous monitoring was used to provide real-time data on the bridge movement and load whilst work was undertaken. We also supported with propping & jacking system to hydraulically lift the bridge.Find out more
Our engineered solutions range from standard designs to major projects, through to emergencies. We can also offer an end-to-end service from design and supply through to installation and removal.
We can work with you from initial concept design through to project completion, across all aspects of temporary works.
No matter how large or complex the project, we can help. It's what our major project teams do every day!
