Infrared thermographic survey of buildings to assess energy loss before and after renovation
This was a first for the Estate and we have enjoyed working with IRT on this project. They guided us through the reports and showed just how beneficial the works had been to the performance of the parade. This has opened our eyes to the possibilities and we expect to see a lot more of IRT in the future.

IRT surveys Solution
Infrared Thermographic survey conducted by certified IRT surveys thermographer, before and after renovation of north end of the building block representing 20 individual properties.
Elevation of each property thermally imaged.
Analysis of thermal images and submission of detailed comparison report by experienced IRT analyst.
Before renovation (left), identification of numerous areas of high levels of heat loss, mainly around windows, at eaves and at building junctions suggesting poor building detailing and general deterioration to the building.
After renovation (right), identification of improvements to the overall consistency of the building with a more consistent and improved thermal performance. Also identification of areas requiring further work.
Benefits for Sloane Stanley Estate
