Session Overview

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 and operators are interested in mitigation of risk from facility floods, aging roofing systems and costs associated with the clean-up of water damage.

Specific to roof monitoring the following shall be outlined:

DigiScanTM 360 Service – comprehensive roof scan using the digital multi-vector mapping technology, similar to electric field vector mapping for integrity and leak locating in inverted roof membranes.

BuildingIntelliTM Membrane Monitoring – continuous, permanently installed membrane integrity monitoring system for conventional and inverted roof assemblies.

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.
