THS Concepts were appointed by Hollandia UK who are a reknown Dutch engineering company. They have delivered a number of impressive jobs across the world involving bridges, buildings and civil engineering projects.
Wembley Stadium is an iconic, internationally known stadium. The structure is home of the England national football team and seats approximatley 90,000 people. Along with football the stadium is also used for other sporting events as well as music concerts.
The purpose of the survey work is to monitor the structual steework. The results of the survey are used to check the structure over time as part of the maintanance of the stadium.
The project is currently on going into the future, we return approxmatly every 6 months to undertake the survey work.
To survey the monitoring points we use a Leica 1 second total station. In the roof of the stadium there are a mixture of prisms and reflective targets to pick up on. If you are ever in the stadium see if you can spot any!
The monitoring survey process is a fairly easy process to undertake. One minor issue is we somtimes encounter prisms that don’t reflect back. This means we sometimes cannot get readings. The result of this is that one of the Hollandia team will have to use roped access to replace the prism!
