Aug 2016 – Nicholls Colton crack monitoring service

Screenshot 2016-09-01 18.17.57This summer, Nicholls Colton Testing (NCT) have been undertaking crack monitoring on an M5 underbridge in Gloucestershire. After undertaking an extensive defect survey, our team installed crack gauges in late 2015. Since then, at the request of our client, NCT have returned to the site once a month in order to monitor the widths of cracks on both abutment walls. The data generated, combined with other surveying techniques allows for the long term monitoring of any structural movement.

These works were undertaken in collaboration with our sub-contracted traffic management and access providers and were timed to minimise disruption to traffic.

For more information with regards to the range of services that NCT and the other group companies offer, please email john.davies@nicholls-colton.co.uk, or call +44 (0)116 261 9803. Alternatively, we can provide a scope of services or CPD presentation on your premises at a time to suit you and your staff.
