Title : The Benefits of Real Time Data on Foundation Monitoring as Per FPA-SC-12-0

ABSTRACT : In 2005, FPA released FPA-SC-12-0 (GUIDELINES FOR EVALUATING FOUNDATION PERFORMANCE BY MONITORING) proposes initial foundation surveys for every residence to establish baseline foundation elevations and capturing 5 to 8 plot points for a typical residence to monitor foundation movement. This presentation will share how the measurement technology has evolved since 2005 allowing hundreds of plot points and even hundreds of thousands of plot points to be gathered per year per foundation. The presentation will also include recommended changes to FPA-SC-12-0 to allow the community to benefit from the advancement of this technology.
