Tunnel Instrumentation and Monitoring

As megacities struggle to provide infrastructure, residential and commercial spaces to its increasing number of residents in a limited land mass, existing structures- both surface and underground are bound to get affected by new constructions. In such a scenario, implementing an effective instrumentation and monitoring (I&M) programme for the structures within the zone of influence of construction, becomes extremely essential. Benefits of a well-executed I&M program are manifold- from providing design verification to ensuring safety during and after the construction.
