About the Topic:
Structural Monitoring Technology facilitates sustainable building practice by informing building consultants and owners of issues that could become long term areas of concern. Leading edge building monitoring technology is used in the investigation of building performance and is capable of monitoring moisture content, condensation, dew point, thermo profiling, vapour pressure, differential air pressure and building component movement. Structure Monitoring Technology applications will be outlined in the context of installation during various stages of the building life cycle including:
- New construction,
- Existing buildings, and
- Re-commissioning or major renovations.
The initial commissioning and verification of design details is key for design professionals. In addition, building owners/operators are interested in mitigating risks from floods, aging roofing systems and costs associated with the clean-up of water damage. This presentation will demonstrate the various sensors, monitoring systems and scanning methods that can be used for verification and reporting purposes. Real life practical applications, installation details, site conditions, and monitoring results will also be showcased.
