Monitoring construction work: Lessons learned and practical guidance, Belfast

About this event

The presentation follows the development of Laing O’Rourke’s internal Instrumentation and Monitoring Dept, to look at the dramatic changes which have occurred in the way construction work is monitored over the last six years. The talk will look at the mistakes, the schoolboy errors, as well as the drivers for change. This will primarily look at ground movement and asset protection monitoring, but will also touch on environmental monitoring such as noise, dust, vibration and water quality.

The talk will draw on experience and lessons learnt on projects such as London Gateway Port, Crossrail, Tideway to HS2 and beyond, to provide practical guidance on how monitoring should be undertaken and how to deal with fundamental issues of error, accuracy, repeatability and the “Focussing Illusion”. Changes in measurement technology will be looked at, as well as looking forward to future developments in areas such as Fibre Optics, Laser Scanning and Satellite Imagery.

The lecture will begin at 6:15pm, with refreshments served from 5:30pm. This event is a joint meeting with NI Geotechnical Group.
