When you need thermal infrared aerial imagery for roof or building condition assessments on multi-family, commercial, industrial or institutional buildings in Nashville, Tennessee, Building Diagnostics Group can help.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), founded in 2002, is an industry leader in aerial infrared imaging and commercial building thermal inspection services. Our expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures enables us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures.
Armed with our FLIR equipped commercial DJI Inspire and Matrice sUAS drones with a Zenmuse XT 640×512 resolution radiometric infrared camera system, BDG performs aerial thermal inspections, from new installations to annual inspections.
Aerial infrared thermography is a powerful non-invasive tool for a wide range of applications that might otherwise require destructive contact, such as:
Aerial infrared commercial roof inspections – BDG’s aerial roof inspections are the best method of detecting active roof leaks during due diligence of property acquisitions and are considerably faster and less expensive than traditional roof inspection methods. Our team can quickly evaluate millions of square feet without roof access or disruption of building occupants.
Aerial infrared tower and structure inspections – The use of small, easily maneuverable drones that can see virtually every angle of a structure is a safe, efficient and cost-effective method of assessing visible deficiencies, documenting the condition of the existing coating, determining hardware failures, and assessing general overall conditions of water towers, cell towers, and other elevated structures.
Aerial infrared solar panel inspections – Aerial drone thermal imaging inspections are a game changer for evaluating solar panels. BDG can validate new installations and aging infrastructures and identify defective or damaged panels to help maintain maximum operational output, long service life, and high returns on investment.
