Increase the lifetime value of your infrastructure

Structures last longer when they’re well built and well taken care of. Heavy construction projects need to be regularly monitored to ensure operational safety. Regular monitoring also enabled effective management of project progress and asses any potential impacts on the environment.

Long-term monitoring ensures the stability of existing structures. This maintenance looks at the impacts of ageing, as well as the potential effects coming from nearby construction activity, seismic activity and other natural hazards.

A proactive maintenance strategy with routine and preventive maintenance schedules will also help extend the lifespan of assets by ensuring servicing is done when due.


The best maintenance strategies for heavy construction


Every construction project is unique, with different maintenance needs. To help shape your operate and maintenance strategy consider:

  • If the technology is versatile and flexible for your projects requirements (keeping safety, performance and sustainability in mind)
  • Preventative maintenance to increase lifetime value of your infrastructure by regularly capturing the conditions of your built assets

There are a wide range of solutions you can choose from. Most heavy construction projects use a variety of survey methods such as total stations, GNSS, terrestrial laser scanning or mobile mapping. These tools are used for all types of projects to review potential dilapidation, asset management, crack detection and various machine learning applications.

Learn more about the best operate and maintenance approaches below:


1. Capture site conditions on the go

Capture high-density and high-resolution 3D point cloud data without needing to step outside your vehicle with mobile mapping solution platforms, eliminating danger zones and significant health and safety risk.

2. Access real-time information

Constant impact and movements pose many major risks that might affect the health and safety of those working on and around the site. Real-time monitoring round-the-clock automatically provides data and generates reports based on your needs.

3. Choose an easy and integrated solution

Make sure the technology you choose provide a seamless integration of hardware and software, and are promptly connected to the cloud and instantaneously informs you about any movements and changes.

4. Automate your monitoring routine

Choose a highly flexible automatic deformation monitoring system that is able to combine geodetic, geotechnical and meteorological sensors to match the needs of your monitoring project.
