When older buildings start to shift and crack, it is not always in the owner’s best interest to start from scratch. Often, a more cost-effective solution can be found by taking a close look at the problem and determining if repairs are possible. At Stacey Surveying, we can undertake a very precise monitoring survey for any property on a monthly, bi-monthly or half yearly schedule.
We pride ourselves on carrying out each and every monitoring survey with the highest attention to detail. While we’ve assisted with a range of clients and projects, one of our most notable monitoring projects is the ongoing quarterly survey of the famous Melbourne landmark, the Banana Alley Vaults on Flinders Street.
During our monitoring surveys, we determine the direction and magnitude of any building movement. This information can provide a good indication of where and how repair work should be conducted. We can also track movement over time to identify whether the problem is worsening.
Monitoring surveys are required for buildings and other structures that are experiencing movement or showing signs of movement. Common structures that need monitoring include bridges, dams and retaining walls.
The cost of a monitoring survey can vary depending on the specifics of a building and the required frequency of surveys. To obtain an accurate cost estimate, discuss your requirements with our team today.
