Case Study – Settlement monitoring services for JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel

In the construction industry, it is essential to monitor the behavior and evolution of buildings over time. This is particularly important for large and complex projects, such as the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel.

This case study provides an overview of how technology and the team’s expertise were used to monitor and record the evolution of this prestigious hotel.

Project description

The JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel is one of the most remarkable hotels, located right in the heart of Bucharest, adjacent to the imposing Palace of Parliament and the Cathedral of the Salvation of the Nation. Designed for a balanced and nurturing lifestyle, it offers intuitive design and functionality, where every detail matters.

The Importance of construction monitoring over time

Careful monitoring of construction behavior over time is a crucial aspect of project management and structural safety assurance, helping prevent costly issues and extending the lifespan of buildings.

By using specific technologies and equipment (Trimble DiNi 03 level and Mira Invar), the Xplorate Group team contributed by ensuring the accuracy of settlement monitoring.

Project Execution

The measurement stages involved installing settlement marks according to the project plan, establishing reference points, and stations for geometric leveling. The field data obtained were processed with specialized software to create a centralized table along with settlement diagrams.

Results and benefits

The study generated significant and relevant data regarding the construction’s evolution. This information allowed for the identification of any anomalies and the implementation of corrective measures in the early stages.

Monitoring does not stop once the project is completed but continues throughout the building’s lifespan. It is both a necessity and an obligation for all builders to conduct periodic assessments, starting from the design phase, continuing throughout the construction’s lifespan, until the demolition or decommissioning of the building.

This contributes to the safe operation of the building, avoiding accidents or damage that could have a detrimental effect on human life, the environment, or property.


The settlement monitoring project for JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel emphasizes the importance of continuous construction supervision and demonstrates how technology and surveying specialists can contribute to achieving this essential objective.
