Vibration study or seismic construction study
When laying foundation piles for a new construction nearby, it is possible that vibrations affect the integrity of your building structure. It is therefore very important to carry out a seismic analysis of the structures of the building in order to closely monitor the vibrations coming from the construction work. Following the vibratory study of the building structure, our engineers will conduct a follow-up and a thorough inspection of the structural elements to verify that there has been no change. In addition, we use saugnac gauges to measure the evolution of existing cracks during the seismic analysis and to check if there has been a growth of certain deficiencies due to vibrations.
Our seismic building survey services include:
- Visual inspection of structural elements and building envelope
- Seismic analysis done with seismographs
- Vibration survey and vibration follow up during installation of piles
- Gauge to monitor deteriorations or movements, if applicable
