The above photo illustrates Sensere’s Omnidots product, which boasts the most advanced vibration monitoring in for the San Francisco market. The Omnidots system is efficient, automated, wireless and easy to use.
The ‘SWARM’ vibration monitor gives you control over all your projects, simply by using your smartphone, tablet or laptop. The Omnidots solution is the gold standard for vibration monitoring in construction and infrastructural projects. It’s a comprehensive and affordable solution for the monitoring of vibrations, in accordance with all relevant norms and industry standards.

The high tech StabiAlert system has been specifically developed for San Francisco high rise vibration monitoring and provides real time graphing, 3 wire diagrams and configurable alerts when movements exceed pre-set alarm limits. (Insert link to SF 3 wire diagram) . The system is so sensitive, you can pick up Earthquake impacts from the other side of the globe and document the impact of nearby construction vibration and settlement. You can clearly document how a high rise expands and contracts from thermal load, seasonal trends, tides and determine exactly how much it moves in Earthquakes, inclement weather and in particular nearby construction.
StabiAlert sensitivity (Click Here for Spec Sheet) also means that a San Francisco building with these monitors in place can be quickly evaluated after an event such as earthquake to review maximum movement as it relates to structural design tolerances. StabiAlert is 24/7 real time monitoring and it provides real data to aid the Building Structural Engineer and City to make a sound decision to allow rapid building reoccupation. StabiAlert provides strong support for Building Occupation Response Programs (BORP) such as the San Francisco Building Occupation Response Program. Note that the ability to reoccupy quickly after an event can provide peace of mind and save the owners substantial money compared to waiting days or weeks for city inspectors to affirm that the building is safe for occupancy.

Because of our dedication to continuous improvement, we ask questions, we communicate our approach, and, when it helps us reach our San Francisco Settlement Monitoring Survey clients’ goals, we create and/or adopt new procedures like our new StabiAlert continuous monitoring system for building settlement monitoring and earthquake safety assessments.
Vibration monitoring in San Francisco is a process where precise measurements are taken of fixed monitoring points placed on a structure or structures. An initial set of baseline measurements are taken from a remote benchmark location not subject to movement from adjacent construction, and repeated periodically to document movement.
Our high tech equipment will detect vertical and horizontal settlement from the fixed monitoring points which then are recorded for a comparative certified report. Meridian can also provide photographic documentation of interior and exterior structural conditions for initial and subsequent measurement changes. This procedure is particularly useful when applied while a neighboring building is going through substantial excavation/construction/shoring work.
