Building Diagnostics Group, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, offers UAV (drone) thermal inspection services that can detect building issues such as damaged or missing insulation, poor mechanical or structural design, and deteriorated or damaged facades, pinpointing the exact locations of energy loss and material failures.
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 throughout the nation.
It has become increasingly common to use aerial drones, or small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), for high-resolution infrared thermography, especially for building inspections during due diligence of property acquisitions.
At BDG, we are FAA Authorized Commercial sUAS Remote Drone Pilots with a current inventory of four aircraft specially equipped with high-resolution FLIR camera systems. The aircraft feature a Zenmuse XT 640×512 resolution radiometric infrared camera that is capable of producing high-resolution images and video.
We can assist in many applications, including building inspections, roofing inspections and building moisture investigations. Our wide range of services include:
- Aerial infrared roof inspections to detect and document areas of moisture for further investigation and proper repair recommendations.
- Aerial infrared solar panel inspections to 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.
- Aerial infrared tower and structure inspections and high-resolution digital photography to help maintain, build, or modify water towers, telephone masts, and other elevated structures.
- Aerial construction site monitoring to collect site data at predetermined intervals or during specific project milestones for analysis by construction managers and owners using a variety of tools, such as photorealistic 3D models, surface and volume measurements, BIM comparisons and timeline data.
Once our on-site investigation is completed, BDG will review and analyze the data and digital images we collected and compile an in-depth project report that details the problems and faults encountered, along with visual documentation of the property, including digital photographs. We also provide the technical details that your vendors will need to fix the problems.
At the point where other companies might disappear, BDG will continue to ensure that your results are working for you by liaising with contractors and vendors, making ourselves available for additional project-related consultation, and undertaking additional reporting and investigative work. We enter into relationships with a long-term outlook. Our commitment to you does not end upon delivery.
