Abstract: Structural health monitoring is a technical process which has been activated or treated at post-construction level by the expertise and structural auditor. A lot of emphases has been given for the post-construction structural health monitoring techniques, but ‘Pre-construction’ and ‘During construction’ stage of a structure are also equally important so that minimum requirement of the process and best quality assurance will be achieved to make the project economically sustainable over a long period. While thinking for the above mentioned new aspect of health improvement, majorly three early stages are to be taken into consideration as- Architectural design and planning, structural and RCC design, and construction stage which make a ‘golden triangle’ where the major role of Architect, Structural engineer and the contractor is defined. This paper is a sincere effort to discuss and application of health improvement and monitoring aspects during pre-construction stage and ongoing construction process with the examples and remedial solutions.
