MONITORING SURVEYS: Anthony Brookes Surveys Ltd use laser scanners, high specification Total Stations and Digital Levels for undertaking monitoring of buildings, earthworks and other structures in 3-Dimensions. This may be undertaken where ongoing movements have been identified or where construction / demolition may affect nearby structures and small movements may be significant.
Frequency of visits can be tailored to suit project requirements and budgets, along with the most cost affective method of survey. Targets fixed to the feature of interest range from low cost stick-on variety upto to precise glass reflectors where the highest accuracy is required. Observations may be taken from remote locations to reduce access requirements and to avoid hazardous areas. Results can be presented graphically or in spreadsheets tailored to the project.
CALCULATIONS AND ANALYSIS: From our survey data we are able to carry out a series of additional services. Areas & Volumes can be calculated to aid in land division and earthworks projects. Cut and Fill areas and volumes can be identified and different outcomes can be considered given a range of possible designs.
Analysis of trends in monitoring surveys can be carried out with tables noting shifts, directions and cumulative movements provided.
Green Power Schemes such as Wind and Solar power can be considered, providing visual impact consideration for turbines pre or post construction and for assessing shadow impact on Solar arrays.
