BREEAM Surveys In Worksop

Does your Worksop business property require a BREEAM survey?

Our experienced team can assist you with obtaining a BREEAM assessment for your commercial property in Worksop. With over 500 successful BREEAM surveys completed, we possess the expertise and knowledge to guide you through the process.

We understand the strict guidelines associated with BREEAM certifications and can ensure your building meets all necessary requirements.

If your building was to fail, we can work alongside you to notify you of any areas which require remedial work and help you cross the finishing line.

If you require a BREEAM survey, the following is required:

  • Your buildings envelope must be finalised
  • The heating should be up and running
  • A minimum of 10˚C internal/external temperature differential must be achieved prior to the survey
  • Weather conditions must be closely inspected to ensure the survey can be carried out

By pinpointing energy leaks and inefficiencies, we empower property owners and developers to implement targeted solutions, significantly enhancing energy performance and reducing their environmental impact.

Moisture / Water Leak Inspections in Worksop

Traditional methods of detecting moisture and water leaks often involve invasive procedures, educated guesswork, and limited visibility meaning the effects of prolonged moisture exposure can result in significant damage to a property’s structural integrity and façades.

If water or moisture permeates your building, your construction materials, fixtures, and fittings will have a considerably shorter lifespan than usual, presenting health and safety hazards.

Fortunately, we have the solution to this problem at hand, by using our specialist thermal imaging cameras, we can discover any leaks, moisture, or even condensation within your structures before any further deterioration or risk can be incurred.

Utilising a thermal imaging camera during these tests provides a comprehensive understanding of the extent of water damage, which would otherwise be limited.

Our Worksop team can conduct these surveys on both your commercial and residential properties.

Underfloor Heating Thermal Imaging in Worksop

Hidden beneath the floorboards of any property with underfloor heating lies a complex network of pipes responsible for keeping any residential or commercial property warm. While underfloor heating offers undeniable comfort, maintaining its efficiency and identifying potential issues can be challenging.

Once your underfloor heating system has been fitted and everything appears to be in working order, the only way to check this is by walking along it. But what if we told you there was a far easier solution which provides greater analytical breakdowns and data.

At Build IR, our team can analyse the floor and identify the specific areas which require attention by utilising our thermal imaging cameras. Our imaging will reveal cooler areas, indicating defective or malfunctioning heating.

Unlike traditional methods relying solely on surface checks, our underfloor thermal imaging provides a visual representation of a property’s heating performance.

Hot zones on the thermal image reveal areas where pipes are functioning optimally, while cooler areas highlight potential problem areas where there may be blockages, faulty connections, or uneven heat distribution.

By detecting these issues early on, a client will be afforded time for proactive repairs, preventing minor issues from escalating into costly breakdowns and ensuring your system operates at peak efficiency.

Freezer / Cold Stores Thermal Testing in Worksop

The energy required to maintain optimal temperatures within a commercial freezer or cold storage facility can incur significant expenses. Heat loss within the premises can escalate operational costs and accelerate the deterioration of the building’s structural elements.

If you have a new or old commercial cold store or freezer, our team can survey them for you whilst they are still in full operation to maximise the total efficiency.

By not having your cold store or freezer surveyed and correctly assessed, you increase the risk of:

  • Increased cooling costs
  • Build-up of ice which is hazardous to people and goods
  • Moisture inside the façade reduces your lifespan of the materials and insulation

Avoid the risks of damage and extend the lifespan of your cold store by asking our team to carry out a survey today!

Air Tightness Testing In Worksop

During the construction process, our team can provide you with air tightness consultancy. Air tightness testing, also known as air leakage or air permeable testing, is now required for new residential and commercial buildings which must meet Building Regulations Part L.

Our comprehensive air tightness guidance is provided throughout the entire process, guaranteeing time and cost savings whilst significantly decreasing the chance of failing the first air test, eliminating the need for corrective work, ensuring on-time completion, and significantly reducing the likelihood of requiring a retest for your building.

We can examine your initial design in three possible ways which are:

Desktop Design Review: By choosing our team, we can assess your construction designs early in the project, ideally before any work begins. We will examine the air tightness strategy and guarantee that it was considered from the beginning, rather than after everything has begun and it is too late to correct easily.

On-Site Design Review: Allow our staff, your design team, and any applicable subcontractors to meet in person to digress about your project plans. As a result, modifications can be considered and implemented immediately without the need to go back and change anything once the building is complete..

Site Advice Visit: Another face-to-face consultation, but this time we will assess your location for air tightness and safety. Depending on the complexity, this can range from one inspection to numerous.

If you have a new commercial or residential structure that requires an air tightness inspection, look no further than Build IR for a dependable, accomplished, and fully insured surveying company!
