Monitoring Surveys 2018-01-16T21:22:35+00:00


Used by Party Wall Surveyors & Contractors across London & The South East. THS Concepts provides easy to understand movement data for structures that are undertaking or near to construction works such as basements, extensions, underpinning etc.


THS Concepts provides monitoring surveys to clients who are in the process of undertaking extensive structural works to their property. Our monitoring service is typically utilised where projects such as underpinning, basement excavation and party wall works are taking place. Our monitoring surveys and subsequent reports help clients satisfy key requirements and agreements with neighbouring property owners.

Your monitoring survey works can be undertaken at intervals to suit your agreement terms. Typically we undertake weekly readings however some jobs specify daily, and others monthly for instance. When setting up your project we use fixed reflective targets or prisms to accurately record data over a set time period. The reports you will receive are clear to read and easy to understand with vertical and horizontal degrees of movement shown.

Does your project require a monitoring survey? Get in touch today via email on [email protected] or message us to discuss your requirements. Once we have understood what you need we will send back a fixed price quote for the monitoring works and when we can get on site to set it all up for you.

Your Monitoring Survey Questions Answered Here!

Where do THS Concepts operate? 2018-01-16T22:37:38+00:00

If you are outside of these areas we are more than happy to provide you with a quote.

What will I receive after my each monitoring survey visit? 2018-01-16T21:01:50+00:00
  • Monitoring survey report outlining movement since the start of the project & since the last reading.
  • Monitoring graphs to easily visualise horizontal and vertical movement over time.
  • Photographs showing any visible signs of cracks (please request).
How do you fix your monitoring survey targets? 2018-01-16T21:04:36+00:00

Typically we fix 25 x 25 mm reflective tape targets to walls using epoxy glue. The reason being is that the targets have to be very secure to allow the subsequent surveys to be undertaken as accurately as possible. We ttry and place all targets away from locations where they can be peeled off and in areas where paintwork damage can be reduced.

If we need to fix prisms then this usually requires a little more work as we may need to drill into existing walls to fix and resin them in.

Do you provide risk assessments & method statements for your works? 2018-01-16T22:44:38+00:00

At THS Concepts we provide our Surveyors with a method statement on how the work should be undertaken combined with a risk assessment outlining potential dangers on site and how these can be mitigated. If you need these supplied for your project then please let us know so as we can send before we arrive.

Can you suggest a plan for the monitoring survey? 2018-01-16T21:01:44+00:00

We can supply you with a monitoring survey proposal which outlines elements such as where targets can be positioned etc. We do advise that you speak to a Building Surveyor who can verify or set out the monitoring survey requirements.

Can I see an example monitoring survey report? 2018-01-16T22:07:25+00:00

No problem at all. If you follow the link below you will see an example PDF report from a previous job we have undertaken. We have also attached an example graph showing the movement on one point. For privacy reasons, we have had to take the job name details off of the report.
