On the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit project we perform precise deformation monitoring, where we survey surface and building settlement points. There are approximately 4250 settlement instruments to be observed at varying frequencies over the course of the project, with 7 survey crews working together to complete daily monitoring tasks where there is active construction. One of the most challenging parts of this work is the traffic management. We work alongside On Track Safety Ltd and Toronto Police to manage the flow and safety of traffic, as well as the workers.
A fresh order of safety gear has arrived for the summer work being conducted at Monteith & Sutherland. Brand new hard hards, safety glasses, gloves, vests, and other important safety gear is ready for use by our new staff, especially summer students joining us from the University of Waterloo and York University.
Yet another accurate and precise breakthrough was made, notably due to tremendous efforts of the project tunnel surveying crew.
At Monteith & Sutherland we are happy to have had contributed to this success by performing numerous gyroscopic surveys, using GYROMAT3000 in order to verify the correctness of the complex underground traverse network spanning over 4 kilometers.
