Movement Monitoring


Reporting movement (or lack thereof) during construction works / insurance claims.

Reports/graphs • Basement Builds • Piling • Underpinning

Working alongside Party Wall Surveyors and Building Contractors across London & The South East, we provide easy to understand movement monitoring reports to record structural movement (or lack of) over time.

We put your mind at rest during your building works by undertaking detailed movement monitoring surveys and producing clear, easy to read reports that help demonstrate the movement, or the lack of, during a building project.

Our monitoring service is typically utilised during projects where underpinning, basement excavation, and party wall works are taking place. The monitoring reports help you satisfy key requirements and agreements with neighbouring property owners.

During major structural works, we recommend speaking to your project manager about monitoring intervals. Usually, during heavy works, the movement monitoring surveys are undertaken weekly and then moving to a monthly basis when the less intrusive works are taking place.

Frequently Asked Monitoring Survey Questions

Yes, we can suggest positions to monitor however this would need to be approved by you, your Structural Engineer and / or Party Wall Surveyor.

Arrange Specification
Arrange your monitoring survey specification outlining where you want to monitor, how often etc. Also outline if you need other elements such as crack gauges, sound monitoring, vibration monitoring etc.

Setting Up
On our first site visit, we will install the targets, crack gauges etc that we will be monitoring.

The installed targets usually white 25 x 25 mm sticky-backed targets that are either mounted to the wall directly or secured on to metal brackets with adhesive.

For targets that aren’t on ground level we usually ask our clients to arrange access with ladders or access platforms however we can arrange ourselves.

Post Setup Report
Following the setup, we issue a post-setup report illustrating what we have set up and where. This is useful for your records and can help explain things to neighbouring properties etc.
