What it is.

Tracked Movement

Settlement monitoring is the process of repeated measurements over time to provide evidence of structural movement or settlement during excavation or construction. A survey baseline is set outside of the site zone of influence and optical survey targets are installed on critical features, including the shoring elements, adjacent structures, and ROW features per the project geotechnical engineer requirements.

Settlement Monitoring

How it Works.

Measure & Repeat

Settlement monitoring should be well organized to anticipate any potential obstructions during construction. Repeatability is essential to precise monitoring, with site surveyors using identical instrumentation and techniques to achieve tolerances of .01’ or better.

We employ only the best talent in land surveying, from onsite surveyors to project managers and operators. We are professionals. Experts. Deeply trained, highly motivated — ready to get the job done.
