Exploiting Drones and Infrared Technology to Evaluate Cladding

15:15 - 16:00

Recent advances in drone technology, together with falling prices of infrared cameras have led to an enticing opportunity for people wishing to survey previously inaccessible areas, such as high rise cladding systems. The simplicity and low cost mean this type of service is becoming common place. Low cost and simplicity however doesn’t mean it’s easy and there are many pitfalls to a “lowest price wins” approach. This session aims to introduce the service, detail the deliverable and help the audience understand what is possible.

During this session delagates will learn:

1. When to survey
2. How to survey
3. What to look out for
4. What to expect from a provider
5. How weather can affect results
