This paper describes the installation and monitoring of structuralinstrumentation in a two storey building. The aim of the work was to evaluate the realbehaviour of the structure and compare this with analytical and experimental models. Theinstallation, monitoring and subsequent analysis of the results required careful thoughtand planning. The programme has led to critical observations of construction practice aswell as confirmation of the discrepancy between design and real behaviour.
