Building Diagnostics Group offers drone inspection services in several different roles. We often work with engineering firms during the due diligence process of an acquisition and are typically the first to inspect the exterior of a property, providing insight as to the overall condition and the need, if any, for additional services.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), founded in Atlanta, Georgia 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.
For fast, reliable infrared inspection from the air, our 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.
Aerial Inspection Services
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 (but are not limited to):
Commercial Roof Surveys: BDG’s roof inspections are fast, affordable, non-destructive, and provide a clear picture of water-damaged areas. We pinpoint problem areas in need of repair to help you avoid expensive roof replacements. Our team can quickly evaluate millions of square feet by means of our aerial drone roof inspection service or evaluate up to 300,000 SF of roof area in a single visit via our walk-over method.
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.
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.
