Horizontal and Vertical Settlement Surveys


​Settlement Monitoring Targets

Here at HSI, we provide comprehensive data reports to track any structural movement (horizontal, vertical). We monitor at sites that require ongoing construction activities (underpinning, excavation or demolition). Our Licensed Land Surveyors will install surveying targets at specific locations on neighboring structures near your construction site.

Data from the surveying equipment goes through a software program that creates a baseline report of the position(s) of the targets. Our high tech equipment will detect vertical and horizontal settlement from the fixed monitoring points which then are recorded for a comparative certified report. These follow up visits to determine if the targets have moved give work teams the necessary data to decide whether to continue excavations or make changes to the plan

Optical Monitoring Survey services are provided on a bi-weekly, weekly, or daily basis. HSI is the most accurate and cost-effective company in this business. Please call for help with this important process. 

​Horizontal and Vertical Movement Surveys are required by the DOB in Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, and Staten Island.
