Building Diagnostics Group offers aerial infrared inspections in Alpharetta, Georgia, that can help you assess the structural integrity of a building during due diligence of your commercial and multi-family property acquisitions.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is a multifaceted consulting firm that specializes in the non-destructive detection, investigation, and resolution of water intrusions on multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings throughout the nation.
For fast, reliable infrared inspection from the air, BDG’s team of FAA Authorized Commercial Remote Drone Pilots utilize unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that are specially equipped with FLIR SYSTEMS’ Zenmuse XT 640×512 radiometric infrared camera systems and capable of producing high-resolution images and video. FLIR is the world’s leader in infrared technology.
With our proven inspection techniques and high-resolution infrared thermography, we can rapidly identify costly hidden damage behind most facades. This provides the owner or purchaser with an accurate understanding of the building’s structural integrity in order to make informed decisions.
BDG has performed services on 300+ multi-family and commercial properties and inspected in excess of over 50 million square feet. Our services have identified significant hidden building defects that have cost from $2 to $5 million dollars in underlying structural repairs.
Our services include:
Aerial Roof Inspections: Aerial drone thermal infrared commercial roof inspections are ideal for detecting active roof leaks and are faster and less expensive than conventional roof inspections. The BDG team can quickly evaluate millions of square feet and provide visual images of water saturation without roof access or disruption of building occupants.
Solar Panel Inspections: Regular inspections of solar panels are important for efficient power generation, long service life, and high ROI. Traditional manual inspections generally require a technician to search each panel for issues, expending a lot of time and resources. One drone flight can map the site quickly and with amazing accuracy. BDG performs aerial thermal solar panel inspections, from new installations to annual inspections.
Aerial Tower & Structure Inspections: Tower climbing is a dangerous job. Drones can see virtually every angle of a structure and provide a safe, efficient and cost-effective method of assessing visible deficiencies, documenting the condition of the existing coating, determining hardware failures, and providing general overall tower conditions. BDG provides high-resolution digital photography and aerial infrared tower and structure inspections to help maintain, build, or modify water tower structures, cell towers, and other elevated structures.
Building Energy Performance Surveys: Aerial infrared thermography inspections are quickly becoming a powerful tool for evaluating heat loss in a large building. The data is used for effective quality control, asset management, insurance investigations, and project documentation. BDG can perform a building energy survey that will identify heat loss and improper / inadequate insulation installation.
