GEOTECHNICAL INSTRUMENTATION
& MONITORING SECTION
The Instrumentation section of Geolab (M) Sdn Bhd has been playing an active role in the Southern Region’s construction activity since the early ‘90s.
 
   

We have grown through the construction boom time, monitoring many important structures while always abreast with the latest geotechnical, structural and environmental instrumentation available in the rapidly growing instrumentation technology worldwide.

Our Facilities/Equipment :
  • Inclinometers (EL, manual)
  • Inclinometer Spirility Check
  • Piezometers (All types)
  • Settlement Systems
  • Building Crack & Tilt monitoring (Tell-tale, VW, etc)
  • Environmental Noise, Vibration & Meteorology.
  • Continuous Data logging & Remote GSM Monitoring.
  • Temperature Monitoring.

WHY THE NEED FOR INSTRUMENTATION ?
 
Instrumentation these days should not be installed just for the sake of ‘fashion’. Instrumenting the ground or a structure is important to derive useful and also critical information as follows:

Site Investigation
Instruments are used to characterize site and ground conditions and soil parameters/properties e.g. pore water pressure, effective stress.

Design Verification
Instruments are used to verify design assumptions and to check that performance is as predicted so necessary measures can be taken if the parameters are unexpected.

Construction Control
Instruments are used to monitor the effects of construction on the structure itself or the effect of construction to existing nearby structures, e.g. crack, tilt & settlement.

Quality Control
Instrumentation can be used both to enforce the quality of workmanship on a project and to document that work was done to specifications.

Safety
Instruments can provide early warning of impending failures, allowing time for safe evacuation of the area and time to implement remedial action.

Legal Protection
Instrument data can provide evidence for a legal defense of designers and contractors for legal claims of non-performance, damages or negligence.

Performance
Instruments are used to monitor the in-service performance of a structure while it is occupied without disturbing the occupants.
