Recap: Instrumentation and Monitoring Conference 2019

On March 26th Senceive attended Ground Engineering’s Instrumentation and Monitoring Conference (I&M) at Cavendish Conference Centre, London. The event looks to encompass the leading minds from within the monitoring industry.

Since its last appearance at the event two years ago, Senceive has gone from strength to strength. In the past few months alone Senceive has released its Optical Displacement Sensor (ODS) product and GeoWAN wireless platform. There has also been a recent £750,000 investment from Birmingham Finance and full Network Rail acceptance for the FlatMesh product range. Now, returning as Gold Sponsors, Senceive played a prominent role at this year’s event.

At the conference, with a stand situated in a prime location across from newly announced partners, Sigicom, the company launched its IPI Wireless Interface Solution in collaboration with Soil Instruments.

In addition, Senceive also took part in two talks at the event. To begin with, the company’s Business Development Director, Aidan Laimbeer, discussed monitoring challenges and instrumentation with Tideway East Deputy I&M Manager, Stephen Diver. This was soon followed by a Sensor & Satellite Asset Alert and Management System (SSAAMS) panel, featuring Senceive Lead Engineer, Peter Graham.

Throughout the conference’s talks, Senceive also received special mentions from various speakers. Head of Specialist Monitoring Senior Technology and Innovation Manager at Amey, Andy Plumb, discussed a variety of Senceive projects; Jonathan Gammon, Advisor/Non-Executive Director for Geotechnical Observations Ltd, spoke at length about Senceive’s work on the Bexleyheath line at Barnehurst, and how it helped to avert a potential major issue; and Ignacio Menoyo, I&M Contracts Engineer at Ferrovial Laing O’Rourke (FLO), mentioned Senceive’s role in the Northern Line Extension;

After a busy day yesterday, tonight sees Senceive compete for two awards at the Construction News Specialists Awards. The company is nominated for ‘Equipment Specialist of the Year’ and ‘Innovation of the Year (non-contractor)’.
