IRT_logoAs Europe’s largest independent infrared surveying practice, IRT Surveys is now offering one of the hottest business franchise opportunities in the market.

Due to environmental, climate change and legislative pressures demand for thermal imaging surveying services has never been greater and to meet this growth IRT is offering a unique franchise package.

IRT Surveys are offering franchise territories throughout the UK.  Franchises will receive full technical training in all the services IRT offers including infrared building surveys, energy assessments, IRT carbon dashboard, refurbishment savings reports, thermal imaging, building and roof surveys, continuity insulation analysis.   Previous technical experience is not necessary but a background in the building or construction trades would be a definite plus.

Franchisees will also have access to the IRT Surveys processes, systems, name, logo, website, history and marketing strategies as well as lead generation support.  The business has low overheads as it can be operated initially from home and owners can use their own vehicle.  This franchise opportunity is a fantastic opportunity as a stand-alone business or as a great added value service to those businesses already working in the target sectors of IRT clients such as building construction, renewable energy, roofing and insulation companies and so on. 

Founded in 2002, IRT Surveys is a well-established thermal imaging company started by Stewart and Alan Little who have over 11 years experience in the field.  IRT specialises in non-destructive testing of buildings via infrared surveys, thermal imaging and electronic leak detection.  Over the past 11 years the company has surveyed over 12 million metres of flat roofs, solved countless persistent defect issues, resolved numerous disputes and helped business owners ensure they have energy efficient buildings that are free of defects, resulting in substantial savings for customers.  The company’s services save clients hundreds of millions of pounds every year through the identification of building defects and energy loss.

Stewart Little, managing director of IRT surveys said: “We give franchisees everything they need to start up and build a highly profitable business.   Businesses and public bodies are under ever increasing pressure to save energy, use resources efficiently and cut carbon emissions…we provide the tools and knowledge to help them do this. The franchisee journey starts with a 10-day intensive training programme at our headquarters which will cover sales, marketing, finance and administration as well as the core technical training.”

He added: “This franchise offers the potential to make a substantial income.  By year three an IRT franchisee could be generating sales of over £200,000 and profits of over £83,000 from the business.

“We are looking for hard working individuals with drive, determination to succeed, who enjoy dealing with people and are committed to giving excellent client service.”

The cost of an IRT Surveys franchise is £24,995 (+VAT) plus there will also be a capital expenditure (for essential equipment) and working capital requirement. To discover a career change and take us up on the Thermal Imaging Franchise opportunity use the contact details below:
