Mainmark has announced it will be the exclusive distributor of STRAAM, a world-leading structural monitoring technology, in Australia and New Zealand.

To mark the start of this exciting new partnership, the Mainmark team has had the pleasure of hosting Dr Alan Jeary, industry pioneer and creator of STRAAM technology, in Australia and New Zealand over the last three weeks.

STRAAM (which stands for Structural Risk Assessment and Management) measures the unique dynamic signature, or ‘heartbeat’, of any above-ground structure. It is a world-first structural monitoring technology that enables construction, property, public infrastructure and insurance industries to pinpoint structural damage and risk in real-time.

Dr Jeary developed STRAAM technology and is considered an authority in dynamic structural monitoring.  He is  a Telford Award winner and an Officer of the Order of Australia for his contribution to engineering and education.

Based in the US, Dr Jeary flew to Australia and New Zealand to host a series of presentations and seminars on the future of structural risk assessment and monitoring for customers, prospective clients, industry associations and the media in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland.

While in Adelaide, Dr Jeary presented a session at the annual conference for the Australian National Committee on Large Dams where he discussed how non-destructive testing of dam structures using STRAAM can determine risk profiles. In Sydney and Wellington, Dr Jeary was the guest speaker at media and industry events.

The initial response to STRAAM has been fantastic. STRAAM is the most effective way to measure the unique dynamic signature of any structure and enables a wide range of sectors (including  construction, property, insurance, building, public infrastructure and facility management) to undertake real-time structural analysis. This is invaluable for diagnosing and addressing the causes of structural damage, likely risk of further damage and issues with overall structural stability.
