Due to the sensitivity of the wall at Ridham Dock, Frankham surveyors were asked to monitor the east side of the dock wall.

We set up a high powered, high tech Total Station that monitors the wall every hour and is able to pick up movements of between +/- 3mm on the wall.

It is being analysed via geomos monitoring software. This is to determine the wall movements before the sheet piling starts in May 2009.
