Monitoring in the construction industry
Monitoring is: ‘The systematic observation, recording and evaluation of dynamic processes, in a selective fashion, either continuously or on a periodic basis, for as long as is necessary to capture all the important cycles, trends or permutations. Used, for example, to track structural behaviour, characterise the building environment, identify risks or record rates of decay.’ Ref Stained Glass Windows: Managing Environmental Deterioration, published by Historic England in 2020.
