Proper placement and setup is critical to getting the accurate and reliable information you need. That’s why IGS is proud to offer one-on-one or classroom training.
IGS had 7 personnel on-site to ensure the customer stayed within the vibration criteria of 0.35 in/s. Readings, source points, location and distance data was collected digitally in the field and uploaded in real-time to a web-based data hosting platform.
IGS assisted with the installation of a remote monitoring array of 5 vibration monitors, 25 wireless tilt meters, 75 wireless crack meters, 111 3D prisms and 5 total stations to conduct a long-term study of the world's first massive concrete structure and first large permanent college sports arena.
The quarry operator wanted to get 500,000 tons of rock within 200 feet of a high pressure transmission pipeline. IGS calculated a max pounds per delay to remain under the 2.0 in/s. With readings right on our calculations, the blasting contractor was able to remove decks in the hole and add a row to future blasts.
IGS conducted pre-/post-condition documentation and monitored 34 vibration systems in the adjacent subway tunnels, stations and vent shafts during demolition, excavation and construction of the 24-story, tower foundation. This megaproject is considered one of the most significant urban renewal developments in NYC.
VIBRATION MONITORING & CONDITION SURVEYS
The quarry was experiencing high PPV levels. After installing an advanced seismograph, IGS discovered a timing issue and made recommendations that reduced the PPV by 40%. They were also able to remove one of the decks from each hole in the blast and reduce operating costs.
CENTRAL PARK TOWER
IGS installed and monitored 20 vibration monitors in adjacent buildings and NYCTA subway tunnel for five years during excavation, blasting and construction of this 88-story, mixed-use tower, the tallest residential building in the world and second tallest skyscraper in the United States when complete in 2020.
THE HOLE IN THE WALL
A 5-story hotel with a 2-story underground parking facility was constructed within 6 inches of the Hole in the Wall bar. IGS conducted a pre-construction inspection and monitored 8 seismographs, 8 wireless tilt gauges, 4 dynamic crack gauges, 8 GPS stations and a base station.

WEEKI WACHI SPRINGS UNDERWATER THEATRE
A new seawall is being built within 200 meters of the underwater theatre at Weeki Wachi Springs State Park. This theatre was built in the 1950s and still runs daily mermaid shows! IGS installed four Remote Vibration Monitoring Systems and three crack gauges along cracks in the exterior of the theatre to monitor the construction.
Thanks Joe for all the knowledge and assistance you've given. We are excited about how things turned out.
