Do I need to employ a level 2 Thermographer for BREEAM inspections?

Yes, BREEAM stipulates that thermal surveys must be carried out by a level 2 thermographer. In our experience highly qualified thermographer’s produce higher quality and more technically consistent inspections. Our engineers have the ability to troubleshoot, calibrate equipment, interpret data, and create reports. Our Level 2 thermographer’s have the ability to provide quantitative data. This involves utilising accurate temperature measurement and temperature criteria to grade or assess the severity of exceptions. One benefit of this type of inspection is that it allows our thermographer’s to take into account the load on the building envelope at the time of the inspection, the equipment type, and classification as well as changes in ambient operating conditions. It also allows thermographer’s to identify problems that aren’t presenting as exceptions.

We hope this information has been helpful. If you require a BREEAM Thermal survey our professional and certified Level 2 Thermographer’s will carry out your thermographic Inspections for BREEAM compliance in accordance with all necessary standards and current regulations.

All we need are a few details such as floor plans and elevation drawings and the building location to provide a quotation. We will also send across our informative checklist to help you prepare for the thermal survey.
