Geotechnical Observations provide structural and geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring services for civil engineering projects


Geotechnical and structural instrumentation is used to monitor the performance of ground and structures. This information is used to deliver feedback to engineers about their designs and construction processes. This can be used to improve their designs, introduce efficiencies and very importantly to protect against potential failures.


Three reasons to use us:

  • You want the right instruments and you want them installed well.

  • You want to receive results that make sense.

  • You want help to understand the results if they don’t make sense.

We are the exclusive distributor of ShapeArray displacement monitoring equipment in the UK.
ShapeArrays are manufactured in Canada by Measurand Inc.


The objective of monitoring should be to provide as much information as is relevant to the problem being investigated and in the simplest and most complete form possible to be of use to those who have to make engineering judgements.
