New guides for monitoring

ICES has published the Client Guide to Instrumentation and Monitoring – a pan industry publication written by volunteers. The guide has been endorsed by the Survey Liaison Group on behalf of ICES, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, The Survey Association and the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Chris Preston, ICES senior vice president and chair of the institution’s Geospatial Engineering Practices Committee, commented: “With the massive increase in the use of instrumentation for structural monitoring, this long awaited guidance provides welcome information to those involved with this complex subject.”

The guide is available in two formats; a one page summary and a more in-depth document covering common questions, benefits, the scope of monitoring, and a guide to the types of instrumentation available.

The full guidance is freely available to download here and the summary here.
