Event Description

It is regularly acknowledged that the gap between design intent and reality can be disturbingly large but how can we identify what's gone wrong?

Thermal imaging can be a very powerful way of finding where the gaps are in an external envelope and speakers Mark Watts (CEO of Cedar Rydal Ltd) and Mark Colyer (MD of ScanTherm) will use a recently built project - Windmill Close in Meopham - to demonstrate quite how useful this technology can be.

The talk will cover Cedar Rydal’s approach to the project, how the design team used thermography as an 'as built' verification tool and the ‘stick and carrot’ of verification within the building contract documents.

The team carried out a series of surveys and produced a report for the scheme and the presentation will cover the findings of the report - the limitations of thermography will also be discussed.

The presentation outlines how the findings of the report were addressed and what lessons were useful to take forward for the next project and concludes with ScanTherm reviewing the wider "state of the art" in building thermorgraphy applications.
