Gediminas Castle Hill update 2019 - Lithuania

Latest images from Gediminas Castle Hill in Lithuania show the site where Geosense sensors, including Load Cells, Prisms and Tilt Meters, have been used to monitor a major landslide. View a pictorial record of work on the site, which tracks progress from the start of the landslide in 2016 to the present day.

Floodplain Monitoring - The Sigma Plan - Belgium

The Sigma Plan, designed by De Vlaamse Waterweg NV, protects Flanders from flooding, at the same time boosting the valuable nature surrounding the River Scheldt. Piezometers were installed on several cross sections along the new levee. The levee is built on peaty ground and the aim is to monitor the dissipation of the pore water pressure and to steer and control the rate of elevation.

Geosense Instruments for Dams - Worldwide

This guide shows Geosense instruments which have been installed on many dams worldwide as part of dam safety monitoring programmes. The importance of monitoring for dam safety is widely accepted. Monitoring provides the information that is needed to develop a better understanding of the on-going performance of the dam during the construction, impounding and operation phases.

Royal Albert Hall - London

The Great Excavation is the grand name for plans for the Royal Albert Hall which will add an additional 1000m² of space. The project will result in the installation of a two-storey, double height basement on the south-west quadrant of the building. Tilt monitoring was required on the wall of the cellar adjoining the excavation site. Geosense MEMS tilt beams were installed in a ‘T shape’ configuration to ensure any movement of the wall was recorded.

Shell Centre Redevelopment - London, UK

As part of the ambitious redevelopment of Howard Robertson’s original 1961 Shell Centre complex, monitoring of the external basement walls was undertaken using 12 Geosense MEMS biaxial Tilt Meters connected wirelessly to WI-SOS 480 analogue nodes. Despite the signals having to travel through several meters of mass concrete, connectivity of the system was confirmed. Full signal was even achievable from the basement level 13 metres below ground level.

Whitechapel Station - London

As part of the first phase of monitoring, a series of Geosense borehole rod extensometers and inclinometers were installed prior to the diaphragm guide walls being installed. Future instrumentation to be installed includes In-place inclinometers, VW piezometers, VW strain gauges and a data logging system.

Bishopsgate Tower - London

Due to the complex nature of the demolition and subsequent re-building adjacent to large structures, conventional monitoring methods were not possible and therefore a Geosense tilt meter system was proposed and implemented. By utilising BUSSED MEMS tilt meters considerable savings were made due to the reduction in the amount of cabling required.
