BDI is working to provide monitoring services for a building during the demolition and foundation construction works. BDI developed a custom vibration monitoring system that allows for more discreet sensors to be installed on artwork bases for vibration monitoring along with the standard seismograph to monitor floor vibration. Currently, there are 5 seismographs installed to monitor the vibration level of the building and 9 accelerometers installed to monitor the artworks since July 2017. Readings are taken continuously during the demolition and foundation fieldwork.
The monitoring program was established to identify construction induced vibrations that may result in the damage of the building and items inside. The intent is to implement a monitoring plan to detect early-stage damage and reduce the likelihood of construction-related damages to the adjacent building and the item inside.
