Comprehensive and innovative Geotechnical, Structural and Environmental solutions and services.
Sixense provides the full spectrum of manual, automated and innovative technologies in Geotechnical, Structural and Environmental monitoring, including InSAR and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) solutions.
Advanced sensor instrumentation monitors structural movements, deformations, stresses and strains in a vast array of structures such as buildings, bridges, tunnels, excavations, engineered structures, and monuments of historical significance.
We provide the full range of structural, deformation and settlement monitoring sensors for manual or automatic wireless data collection.
Earthworks, foundation construction and subsurface engineering works inevitably involve ground deformations that must be monitored to mitigate risks.
Appropriate geotechnical instrumentation is abundant, and we propose the full range of monitoring sensors to cover your needs with expert knowledge of the benefits and limitations of each.
We offer long-range wireless and real-time data collection to yield tremendous benefits. Still, we also provide manual data collection solutions to cater to all customer needs and find the best value for money.
Our A-to-Z monitoring services include design, procurement, installation, data collection, maintenance, alarm, reporting and decommissioning.
Environmental monitoring helps to ensure that construction projects are carried out in a way that minimizes negative impacts on the environment and complies with environmental regulations. It can also help to identify potential issues early on, so that they can be addressed before they become significant problems.
Monitoring environmental pollution generated by construction works is necessary to reduce the impact on local communities and the wider environment and to ensure that works are carried out in accordance with local regulations.
However, environmental monitoring is too often reactive with no possibility to act quickly on the data recorded. At Sixense we favour real-time monitoring of noise, vibration and air quality - even with predictive ability - allowing for proactive reduction of environmental impacts whilst maximising our client’s usage of heavy machinery on site.

Structural health monitoring (SHM) is a process that involves the use of sensors and other monitoring technologies to continuously assess the condition and performance of a structure. The goal of SHM is to identify and track structural damage or degradation over time, so that necessary repairs or maintenance can be performed before the structure becomes unsafe or fails.
SHM is used to monitor a wide range of structures, including bridges, buildings, pipelines, wharfs... It’s used to detect and diagnose problems such as cracks, corrosion, fatigue, and other types of damage, and to predict the remaining useful life of a structure and/or optimise maintenance.
SHM systems typically involve the use of sensors to measure various structural parameters, such as strain, displacement, temperature, and corrosion rate, and algorithms to process and analyse this data to detect and diagnose problems.
The aim of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is to assess the conditions of your infrastructure in order to understand the vulnerabilities and reduce the risk of usage, whilst optimising its maintenance cost and extending its working life.
