BES Group

Stand F10
Strainstall has been operating since 1966 and was part of James Fisher and Sons PLC from 2006 until December 2022, when it was acquired by British Engineering Services (BES) Group and rebranded to become part of BES Group Asset Reliability as of March 2023. We provide systems and services for bridge monitoring and load testing. Our extensive track record in this sector includes the design, provision, installation and operation of structural monitoring systems for highway and rail clients. We can provide monitoring case studies for many landmark bridges across the UK and worldwide. As an independent system integrator, we can recommend and deploy sensor technologies from a variety of manufacturers, ensuring that the most appropriate and cost-effective equipment is used. Our professionally qualified team includes bridge engineers who understand the applications as well as the available monitoring technologies. Our cutting-edge software platform, Smart Asset Management System (SAMS™), transforms data into actionable information for asset owners and consultants. It collects and integrates data from multiple sources, provides intuitive data visualisation and can perform complex analyses to generate reports automatically or on demand. Available for cloud or site-based deployment, it provides real-time analysis, live displays and instant alerts. We work directly with asset owners, with their consultants and/or contractors, depending upon the project needs and the procurement procedures. We enjoy collaborative team working, where our experience helps to determine the most practical and cost-effective way to specify and deliver a monitoring project.
