The Benefits of Advanced Damp Surveys

One of the most common areas that advanced damp surveys are used is in civil construction. This includes applications in areas such as retaining wall design and avalanche protection, where high accuracy is required. In addition, they are also used in the surveying of soil samples where they can be weighed to determine moisture content.

What are some benefits?

  1. A regular damp survey proves the relative condition of your properties and buildings.

A regular damp survey is an important part of the annual maintenance program. It helps you to determine whether your buildings and buildings are in good or poor condition.

  1. A regular damp survey can help with building damage assessment.

An advanced damp survey can be used to help assess the viability of a building, without actually entering it. It provides a comprehensive record of moisture levels across the structure and identifies any problems that require further investigation (e.g., subsidence).

  1. An advanced damp survey can help you to improve a property’s performance in damp conditions.

An advanced damp survey allows the engineer to determine the factors that influence the construction or maintenance of your property. This information can be used to improve the appearance and performance of a building, reduce damage and improve life expectancy.

  1. An advanced damp survey provides information on moisture levels in soil piles.

Advanced Damp surveys can accurately measure the moisture content of soils and aggregates. The data can then be used to calculate the dry density of the material and its suitability for use.

  1. An advanced damp survey can be used to locate future risks of damage in buildings.

The survey identifies the potential sources of problems that have not been identified in the past, such as deterioration or delamination of structures and soils. It helps identify any site-specific conditions that may contribute to future problems, such as the vertical stability of soil piles and slope stability.

  1. An advanced damp survey can be used to improve the visual quality of design plans.

The survey creates a 3D image of the structure that can be used to review and correct design problems, such as water penetration and soil erosion.


Advanced damp surveys are used in a variety of situations to accurately determine moisture content. This information is used to improve construction and maintenance practices, reduce damage and improve life expectancy for buildings.
