Slab Heave Monitoring - About SLABsense
SLABsense aims to reduce the concern, confusion, costs & conflict of residential slab heave by leveraging innovation, technology & data.
How We're Different
SLABsense was founded on innovation and problem solving - we're not just using the latest technology, we've developed our own patent pending sensors and are bringing new services to the residential construction & engineering industries!
Data based decisions
We believe data makes you smarter!
Traditional slab heave investigations are based on one or two, ‘point-in-time’ measurements often taken months apart. SLABsense captures daily data across a number of sources to add critical context, clarity and a trend timeline enabling more informed decisions.
Diverse expertise and insights from differing industries drives innovation and great services.
SLABsense combines a technology, innovation and service delivery focus with industry specialist research & collaborations to develop effective solutions and services.
Experience, research & early collaborator industry experience spans IT, soil science & testing, forensic structural engineering, volume home building, human-centered design, business planning and finance.
An unique perspective
SLABsense bridges the gap between people, technology & science.
The business model & product offering have been designed from the ground up by SLABsense's founder Rob Young.
- Lived experience of slab heave means he understands how home owners feel.
- 27 years of technology based service design & delivery experience within CSIRO means he understands scientists and engineers, what they do and how to deliver the tech they need.
- Broad IT knowledge unlocks the potential for new applications and cross-industry use of technology.
- Innovation training, tools and a curious 'challenge the norm' mindset means he's always looking for new solutions to real customer problems.
