Subsidence Monitoring and Verticality

KND Surveys Ltd has invested in high technology equipment enabling us to produce an accurate monitoring of buildings both with regard to verticality and precise level data collection. We are able to provide a quick response and turnaround with respect to this aspect of measured building surveys.

The use of accurate remote measuring equipment enables us to collect data on building facades where access is difficult or where data on adjacent buildings outside of the clients ownership is required.

When carrying out a verticality survey a drawing is produced showing the building elevation in outline. The observed grid points are positioned on this and are annotated with the vertical deviations in millimetres.

In addition, a contour drawing is produced which gives a graphical representation of the anomalies of the building face.

All our surveys of this nature are compiled utilising the RICS “Code of Measuring Practice – 6th Edition”.
