Geotechnical Observations (GeO) (www.geo-observations.com) provide high quality field instrumentation, monitoring and related geotechnical consulting services. GeO has worked on projects including Heathrow Terminals 2B and 5, Crossrail, The Northern Line Extension, HS2 and Hinkley Point C. Our aim is to deliver the best possible field monitoring results and to help our clients understand them in the context of the problem being investigated.
GeO supply and install all kinds of structural and geotechnical instruments. We have our own unique flushable piezometer and magnet extensometer for use in deep excavations and compacted fills.
GeO is the exclusive distributor of Measurand Inc (www.measurand.com). ShapeArrayTM in the UK and Ireland, and Ackcio Pte Ltd (www.ackcio.com). long-range wireless network solutions. Together ShapeArrayTM and Ackcio wireless systems can be used to provide near real-time displacement monitoring of earth structures and retaining walls.
GeO’s online platform Geodaisy® is used to perform near real-time analysis, interpretation and adjustment of field monitoring data that can then be exported to compare actual ground and structural response with design predictions, aligning both through real-time back analyses and delivering “The Observational Method through Progressive Modification.” This process has been shown to significantly reduce construction costs and prevent project over-runs caused by uncertainties in ground behaviour.
