High Rise Buildings
Consider a typical office building with up to 500 people working in it. After a substantial natural or manmade disaster; the building’s owners would typically need to have a structural safety survey done before allowing the office workers back in to the building.
The process can take from many hours to a number of days depending on the size of the building and the suspected damage.
However, had the proprietor installed a live monitoring system; he would have been able to instantly say whether the safety levels had been breached. What is the cost of the survey? What is the cost of lost time due to 500 office workers being idle?
