Building Diagnostics Group is an industry leader in water intrusion diagnostic services. Our non-invasive thermal infrared aerial imagery services in New Orleans, Louisiana, will help you assess the structural integrity of a building during due diligence of your commercial and multi-family property acquisitions.
Building Diagnostics Group (BDG) 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 across the nation. Our expertise in infrared building science and water testing procedures enables us to identify the cause and origin of most building failures.
We are FAA Authorized Commercial sUAS Remote Pilots with four DJI Inspire and Matrice aircraft specially equipped with high-resolution FLIR camera systems. The drones feature a Zenmuse XT 640×512 resolution radiometric infrared camera that is capable of producing high-resolution images and video.
Aerial Infrared Thermography Applications
Aerial IR thermography is the most cost-effective way to discover construction failures and to visually communicate them. Although rooted in military applications, it has evolved into one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for predictive maintenance and many other commercial applications, a few of which are described below.
Commercial Roof Inspections
Aerial sUAS thermal infrared commercial roof inspections are ideal for detecting active roof leaks and are significantly faster and less expensive than conventional roof inspections. Our 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 returns on investment. Traditional manual site inspections typically require a technician to search each panel for issues, requiring extensive time and resources. One drone flight can map the site quickly and with unparalleled accuracy. BDG performs aerial thermal solar panel inspections, from new installations to annual inspections.
Aerial Tower & Structure Inspections
Tower climbing is a dangerous job. 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 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, investigations, and project documentation. BDG can perform a building energy survey that will identify heat loss and improper / inadequate insulation installation.
