This project will investigate the potential of combining Building Information Modelling (BIM) with real-time geotechnical monitoring to provide a valuable tool for assessing geohazards, in particular soil slopes and historic retaining structures. The focus will be on creating a single virtual platform that contains historical, geometrical and geotechnical live data of identified geo-hazards in the Cobh area in Co Cork, an urban area severely impacted by geohazards.
