The SMARTbox: effective at any stage (and as versatile as Lego)

New contract types and construction projects in an urban area call for a demonstrably solid approach. This process starts with the tendering stage (EMVI score) and does not end before the project has been completed. In this process of requirements and opportunities, our flexible monitoring system the SMARTbox is a crucially important tool.

Versatile in every respect

SMARTbox is a modular measurement system developed by Strukton. It can be used for recording data at the construction site, providing an insight into trends, and controlling high-risk situations and making them manageable. All the required sensors can be connected to the system in every possible configuration. The system is therefore ideal for optimising and ensuring quality, and for ensuring an optimal structural design with the right priorities in the approach to achieve a high EMVI score.

SMART objectives

The same five aspects that characterise a SMART objective also apply to SMARTbox: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound. In practice, this means that SMARTbox helps to give direction to your project. After thorough assessment and analysis of the preconditions, requirements, risks en possible design optimisations, monitoring of the parameters will make it possible to build more efficiently.

Inbuilt experience

The extensive experience gained by our employees in a wide range of major construction projects has been incorporated into this modular measuring system. As a result, SMARTbox is based on your preconditions and requirements, rather than you having to adjust your requirements to the limitations of a measuring system. SMARTbox is extremely user-friendly and has a variable input/sensor side and output/data side.


The system includes a wide range of functions:

  • Smarter design and organisation, and a higher EMVI score. SMARTbox is a valuable part of your action plan for designing a project and achieving a high(er) EMVI score.
  • Observational Method and risk management. The real-time feedback of measurement data during the construction process makes it possible to directly and adequately manage the construction process
  • Optimisation. The learning effect is attained through the feedback of the effects of the construction process to the design and project phases
  • Quality assurance. The demonstrability of the construction process for clients, licensing authorities and insurers


Sensors, and therefore also their specifications, are selected on a project-specific basis. In principle, any kind of measurement is possible. For example:

  • Noise / Vibration
  • Deformation (slopes and subsidence)\
  • Distance / Length
  • Temperature
  • Strength / Strain / pressure (tension) / elongation stress
  • Water tension / water level
  • Flow rate / Volume
  • Length / Angle
  • Meteorological data
  • Video registration for traffic measurements
