IRT Surveys to abseil for charity – sponsor us!

Category: IRT News


IRT Surveys know its way around a building. As Europe’s largest infrared thermographic building surveyors, we provide energy efficiency and defect detection surveys for structures of all kinds. But our expertise doesn’t usually cover the delicate art of jumping off a building!

On June 1, six IRT employees will be doing just that – abseiling down the face of Dundee University Tower, in a bid to raise £1000 for Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS). The charity runs the only two hospices in Scotland dedicated to providing specialist care for children with life-shortening illnesses and their families, and relies upon donations from events such as this to raise the £8million a year that they need to operate.

The IRT Surveys team are raising money for the Rachel House Hospice, which was Scotland’s first children’s hospice and is a purpose-built ‘home from home’ providing accommodation for eight families from across Scotland at any one time.
