Optical Monitoring

Nationwide Optical Monitoring Services by Big Apple Group

Big Apple Group offers state-of-the-art optical monitoring services across the United States, ensuring the structural integrity and safety of buildings near construction sites, particularly during critical excavation work. While our approach aligns with the stringent standards of the New York City Building Code, our services are tailored to meet the diverse needs of construction projects throughout the country.

Advanced Optical Monitoring Techniques Our optical monitoring, also known as settlement monitoring, is conducted using cutting-edge Total Stations, operated by skilled Big Apple Group technicians. In certain scenarios, Robotic Total Stations are deployed, both of which provide precise, calculated, and analytical measurements necessary for detailed structural documentation and tracking potential changes during construction activities.

Comprehensive Structural Analysis Optical Monitoring involves the strategic placement of optical devices, such as prisms or prismatic sheets, on structures that may be affected by nearby construction activities. These devices are then periodically measured with calibrated survey instruments, a process commonly referred to as a Total Station Survey. This method allows for the precise tracking of any movement or settlement that may occur in the monitored structures.

Data Collection and Review for Proactive Measures The collected data is meticulously reviewed, providing valuable insights to monitoring consultants and engineers. This process plays a crucial role in evaluating the performance of construction projects, enabling the early detection of potential issues. Timely implementation of corrective measures can then be undertaken to prevent any significant structural damage or catastrophic failures.

Nationwide Service for Diverse Construction Needs Big Apple Group’s optical monitoring services are designed to cater to a wide range of construction projects across the United States. Our expertise in this field ensures that every phase of your construction project is closely monitored, providing peace of mind and the assurance of structural safety.
