Monitoring During Construction

Monitoring plays a crucial role in today’s project environment. Excavation, tunneling and other railway construction activities can affect buildings and structures near construction zones. These structures must be monitored to understand their dynamics during construction. Trimble Monitoring Systems increase project safety and reduce risk to your construction schedule.


A Trimble Monitoring System uses Trimble GNSS and Total Stations to make precise measurements according to your project needs. Automated systems can measure 24/7 and automatically record and analyze the results in real time. The Trimble system can detect motion and notify project teams before problems occur.


Monitoring measurements are controlled by Trimble 4D Control Software, which uses Trimble’s advanced processing technology to manage and analyze the data. Results are available immediately, and the system can issue alerts based on user-defined conditions. As railway construction progresses, instruments can be relocated along the alignment or assigned to other projects and uses. The scalable system makes it easy to add additional sensors and capacity as your project changes.


Trimble Monitoring Systems feature the Trimble Web Module, which provides mobility and secure Internet access. Designated personnel can view results and system status from any location.
