Performance monitoring of an earth structure, during and after construction, is a valued component of projects. A variety of instruments are available to detect earth movements and settlements. Successful installation of sensitive instruments require experience to ensure reliable data. Thurber’s professionals provide geotechnical instrumentation options and installation services for many projects.
OIL & GAS OBSERVATION WELLS
Monitoring formation pressure and temperature is an important daily activity for the Oil and Gas industry. Thurber’s involvement began in the 1980’s where we pioneered the installation technique of sensitive downhole instruments. Installation of our designed surface equipment system is based on experience to provide dependable equipment that withstand the harsh climate and environment.
Groundwater monitoring for environmental projects with sensitive conditions require proper planning to complete the field work. Thurber has trained professionals to use a variety of instruments to characterize unique site conditions. Our team is also trained to safely operate off-highway equipment to access difficult locations.
AUTOMATED MONITORING AND FLUID RECOVERY
Environmentally sensitive projects require proper planning to access the work site. Thurber can install automated systems with telemetry to reduce the number of site visits. We are able to design, fabricate, and install automated systems for your project. A system can vary from passive monitoring to interactive fluid recovery.
EARTH RETAINING STRUCTURES
Urban construction projects rely on retaining wall structures to safely support nearby structures and protect workers in deep excavations. Instrumentation installed on the structure provides important performance data during construction. Thurber’s professionals can assist during the design and construction phase to provide creative solutions for monitoring structures.
