Ground Settlement Monitoring

We recommend ground settlement monitoring for projects where ground settlements are difficult to predict, are expected to be excessive, or may require long periods of time to stabilize due to soft soils or large volumes of fill placement. We can provide settlement monitoring program recommendations that are appropriate for the site conditions for a given project (and carry out the subsequent monitoring). Settlement monitoring instrumentation is typically accomplished using settlement plates which are placed on the ground surface prior to fill placement, extended to the fill surface during ongoing fill placement activities, and surveyed on a regular basis during the monitoring program. We can also develop innovative, unconventional techniques to meet the special needs and/or project constraints for unique and challenging projects.
