What is a commercial thermographic survey?
If you are a commercial or private landlord, estate agent, local authority, builder, developer, or architect, then you know how important it is to keep your buildings in excellent condition. Unfortunately, many building owners and portfolio managers fail to carry out sufficient maintenance to protect their assets from degradation. That’s where can help with a thermographic survey.
A commercial thermographic survey is an assessment of a building’s thermal performance. It can be used to identify areas where heat is being lost, or where there are potential draughts or air leakage. The survey is carried out using a thermal imaging camera, which produces a heat map of the building. This can then be used to make recommendations for improving the thermal performance of the building.
As one of the leading providers of Commercial Building Thermography and Non-Destructive Surveying techniques, we provide a range of services across the United Kingdom including highly detailed Thermal Imaging Surveys to ensure that your buildings remain in excellent condition and that any small heat loss problems are detected early and remedied quickly. Correction of unseen air leakage defects is made easy with common faults such as flat roof leaks, cladding defects, delaminating render, defective windows and heat loss all being detected early through the use of high resolution thermography.
In addition to our Thermal Imaging Surveys we can also provide a range of other tests and surveys like Air Tightness Testing, Aerial Surveys, Borescopic Surveys, Ferroscan Surveys and Flat Roof Tests which can also help to highlight building defects. This means that potential problems can be detected and corrected early, before they become major structural issues. Upon completion of each project, a full and comprehensive inspection report is produced which contains all of the necessary information for making informed decisions about the repair or replacement of building components. We can also provide services to help you with building regulations.

BREEAM thermographic surveys
BREEAM is the world’s leading assessment method for sustainable buildings. In order to achieve a high BREEAM rating, thermographic surveys are often used to assess the thermal performance of a building. As such, the weather forecast has to be closely monitored in the lead up to the survey so as to get the best chance of compliance. If the weather forecast changes on the day to show worsening conditions (higher wind speeds etc), then it is in our interest to delay the survey, even if it is just by a few hours.
As these requirements can give a very small window of opportunity, an internal survey is often preferential to eliminate some of the weather influences. BREEAM thermographic surveys are a key part of ensuring compliance with energy efficiency regulations. Our team of experts are on hand to provide a fast and efficient service, ensuring that your property meets all the necessary requirements.
With our years of experience, we can provide an accurate assessment of your property’s energy performance, helping you to make the necessary improvements.
Thermographic survey for electrical systems
A heat loss survey can be used to identify potential problems with electrical components and systems, such as overloaded circuits, faulty breakers, and damaged insulation.
Thermographic roof surveys
Focus 360 Energy offer a thermographic roof survey service using drones, which is an easy and efficient way to assess the condition of your roof. This type of survey can identify areas of heat loss, air leakage and insulation defects, allowing you to make necessary repairs or improvements. Focus 360 Energy surveyors are all trained and PCN certified by the British Institute of Non-destructive Testing (BINDT). PCN is the most established training and certification scheme throughout the UK for thermographers. With over 10 years’ experience your Thermographic needs are in good hands.

What are the benefits of a thermographic survey report?
Thermographic surveys will detect:
- Lack of insulation (small or large areas)
- Poorly installed insulation
- Poorly sealed/leaky doors and windows
- Heat loss areas through flooring either due to lack of insulation, damaged solid floors, poorly fitted suspended flooring etc
- Leaking pipes
- Heating system not getting to temperature/poor radiator
