Why Struct-Sure Monitoring

 

Ensure Safety of Structures

  • Load test bridges, long term monitoring of critical structural elements
  • Monitor historic public buildings and bridges
  • Monitor unique structures such as tall towers, bridges with unique design or construction methods

Protect Investments and Defer Capital Spending

  • Provide monitoring to determine performance changes which occur in a structure over time due to environmental changes.
  • Monitor changes in structural condition to determine when structural rehabilitation or replacement is required.  Use the monitoring as a tool to decide when it is the right time to make capital investment in structure rehabilitation.

Reduce Insurance Risks

  • Monitor a structure during renovations
  • Monitor nearby or adjacent construction
  • Monitor structures which have been damaged

Protect the Public

Monitor stability of significant buildings, bridges or geotechnical structures which would be a significant threat to public safety in the event of structural failure.

 

Monitor Target Area

Monitor specific or special elements of a structure such as curved elements (arches, pipes) or major deep beams (transfer beams, shear walls)

 

Detect Changes

  • Monitor vibrational loads and effect of vibration on the structure
  • Monitor impact of heavy loading conditions, determine if and how over load conditions has damaged the structure (non-elastic behavior, micro cracking, permanent deflections)

Get a Baseline

  • Understand the structural behavior before changes occur
  • Determination of natural frequency of structure in real time before, during and after renovations
  • Monitor structural deformations before and after structural renovations or rehabilitation

Accountability

Structural Monitoring Engineering can show you if the money that has been spent on rehabilitation is beneficial to the structure.
