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.
Infrastructure such as bridges, pipelines, tunnels, highways or railways, are subject to wear, deterioration or malfunction. This may be caused by environmental factors, age or an extreme situation such as a bridge strike or a flood.
Monitoring the behaviour of these assets 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 repair plans can then be put in place before any serious damage is caused, replacing schedule driven maintenance.
A wide range of monitoring techniques and instruments come together to provide a vital data set that details the behaviour of an asset.
This data set is instantly available to all our customers via our unique web portal, LIVEsite. This portal allows users to access their data from any device, in real-time and can alert users to any threshold breaches that have been set as part of the 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
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
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!
