Instrumentation Installation

Geotechnical instrumentation and field testing is routinely undertaken for the evaluation of construction effects, especially in urban areas; for verification of design assumptions; and as part of project safety programs. From program management, planning, and design, through installation, monitoring, and evaluation, GEOTILL provides instrumentation and testing systems to owners, engineers, and contractors on projects above and below ground. Just as ground behavior varies from site to site, so do the goals of our clients.

GEOTILL has provided comprehensive services and solutions for complex underground construction projects for many clients. We have completed many of instrumentation programs and have established ourselves as one of the finest geotechnical field measurement organizations in the Midwest. Our extensive field capabilities are supplemented by our predictive modeling, data management, theoretical analysis, design and report preparation strengths.

What makes us different from other firms in the instrumentation business?

  • Our knowledge of the technology and business within the highest management levels of GEOTILL
  • Our technical depth not only on the technology of instrumentation but on geotechnical and structural components of the work
  • Our understanding of the specific clients needs an motivation.
Geotechnical instrumentation systems are essential in helping project teams understand the behavior resulting from various underground construction activities. Our capabilities include:
Automated data acquisition systems
    • Deformation of soil and rock
    • Loads on ground support systems
    • Stress and deformations of tunnel lining systems
    • Soil and rock pressure
    • Vibration monitoring
    • Pile driving (dynamic load capacity and stresses during driving)
    • Groundwater pressure
    • Settlement and cracking of buildings
    • Real-time web based data presentation
We also perform pre-construction building surveys prior to blasting or other vibration producing construction activities.
