DRPILLA offers optical and vibration monitoring services as required by the NYC Department of Buildings. Technical Policy and Procedure Notice # 10/88 (TPPN 10/88) requires surveying and monitoring of all landmark buildings located on a 90 foot radius of a job site in New York City to ensure no negative effects are created due to the construction process. Vibration monitoring equipment and existing conditions surveys are the steps and procedures needed to take when it comes to complying with this strict construction code. Monitoring is particularly critical when underpinning is being used as part of the foundation design. Each project is unique and requires the development of a through monitoring plan which includes the identification of areas to be instrumented, establishing a monitoring schedule and frequency, and an overall observed condition assessment.
DRPILLA provides our client and / or governing agency with the monitoring results / reports documenting time-histories of measured conditions with conclusions and any recommendations based on our analysis. With that information, potential modifications are taken into account as needed by the design team.
