Thermographic Survey

A Thermographic Survey is a collection of photographs taken of a building using a thermal imaging camera. It is often required as part of a BREEAM Assessment to identify thermal breaks.

Thermographic Survey - At what stage(s) does this apply during your build?

How can you be sure your building has been constructed as well as the plans suggest? Are there cold areas where you think insulation has been missed? You could start drilling holes in your walls to check what’s inside, but it would be far less disruptive and easier to commission a thermographic survey.

What is a Thermographic Survey?

A Thermographic Survey is a non-destructive test of parts, materials and systems. To conduct the survey a collection of photographs are taken of the building using a thermal imaging camera. The photographs are taken from the outside and highlight areas where heat is escaping. It is not covered by Building Regulations but the exercise can be particularly useful if you think insulation is missing or if you believe flues haven’t been installed correctly.

If you are constructing in line with BREEAM, you can earn an extra credit for commissioning a thermographic survey upon completion.
