Drone Thermal Imaging Surveys

Build IR can carry out all or part of our thermal survey investigations using a Drone-mounted Thermal imaging camera if practical.

Build IR Drone Specialists

At Build IR, we understand the value of using a drone-mounted thermal camera: 

  • to reduce risk
  • to eliminate access problems
  • to increase the speed of data capture (especially on large-scale projects)
  • to reduce cost

We work with leading specialists within the industry, to deliver high quality thermal imaging data capture using high-performance, industrial specification drones, combined with PCN Category 3 analysis & reporting.

Working at height comes with increased risks and restrictions. Fortunately, we can eliminate that risk, to ensure that no matter how challenging the circumstances may be, each survey can be completed efficiently and economically!

Our Drone Service:

Our inspections can be used for a variety of different requests, these can include:

External Building and roof surveys

Our building and roof surveys are incredibly efficient and known for saving clients significant time, allowing it to be put to better use. Within the same time frame it can take to organise safety briefings and to perform the inspection, our drones can perform the entire survey multiple times and send live data for analysis.

Roof moisture ingress surveys

All of our commercial drone surveys are performed using the most refined drones to ensure that all roof survey data and analytics are presented to our client in the clearest and most accurate form.

Housing stock surveys

We can conduct thermal imaging surveys on domestic builds, with our FLIR thermographic drones being capable of spotting any abnormalities or defects present, all the way from roof to ground level.

Rooftop Solar Panel Surveys

There is a large list of benefits which comes with employing our drone services for land surveys, including a remarkably faster turnaround time whilst also being more affordable. We can survey a significant are of land, whether in an urban or country setting.

Solar farm surveys

As the majority of Solar PV Systems are installed on sloping roofs, manual surveys can be notably difficult and dangerous, oftentimes requiring cherry pickers to be employed at a greater cost. Our drone solar panel surveys remove this headache, whilst also being able to detect DC Ground Faults, PID Faults, Electrical Issues and much more.

Why Choose Build IR?

At Build IR, prior to carrying out any survey or inspection, we run individual assessments on all involved factors, including vigorous risk assessments and strategic planning to ensure our highly trained team of technicians will ensure that all drone operations remain safe throughout the process.

Unlike traditional methods, our high spec UAV’s can manoeuvre around buildings and access dangerous and risky areas, including those which are deemed impossible to reach on foot. Every surveying and inspection requests can now be completed whilst greatly mitigating the potential risk of injury or fatality.

Nearly all modern surveys require work at height in order to collect the data required. Whilst most surveys will not involve entering areas of particularly high risk, they will still require the use of scaffolding and cherry pickers, both of which can cost a small fortune for any business. However, choosing to use our UAV’s removes this work whilst being more cost efficient at the same time!

We can confidently state that all of our visual inspections are in agreement with the HSE, or Health & Safety Executives, as well as being fully insurance and CAA Approved.

Choosing Build-IR is the smart choice as nobody will be required to work at height for surveys, and there will be minimal disruption to any ongoing operations.
