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. In this lunch presentation, 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/operators are interested in mitigating risk from floods, aging roofing systems and costs associated with the clean-up of water damage. In this presentation, Jason Teetaert P.Eng., president of the BCBEC and vice-president of business development at Structure Monitoring, 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. It happens Thursday, December 15, 2011, 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. at Harbour Towers, 345 Quebec Street, Victoria. Register online at http://www.bcbec.com/seminars.php.
