Smart buildings in action – real-time structural monitoring

The Palau Sant Jordi is a multi-purpose indoors installation and is part of the Olympic Ring complex in Barcelona. Palau Sant Jordi was opened in 1990 and is considered a masterpiece of modern architecture and engineering.

Palau Sant Jordi’s roof consists of a giant, metallic web combined with glazed ceramic tiles. Very strict safety and maintenance standards are required at Palau Sant Jordi in order to avoid disasters and ensure low operational costs. A monitoring system was chosen to optimise this infrastructure’s performance while avoiding unnecessary risks.
