40-Year Building Recertification Infrared Inspections


The Board of Rules and Appeals of Miami - Dade County Building Department approved the requirement that infrared inspections of electrical equipment be part of the 40 - year building Recertification for electrical systems operating at 400 amperes or greater. The Board has put some teeth into their requirements stating that inspections be performed by a Level - II or higher certified infrared thermographer who possesses over 7 - years of experience inspecting electrical systems associated with commercial buildings.

Brady Infrared Inspections has been providing infrared thermography services to South Florida since 2001, working with companies such as FPL, Miami - Dade International Airport, AM - Ex, Disney, Universal Studios, Telemundo - NBC Studios, Florida municipal water and power utilities and high - rise buildings in South Florida.

Let Brady Infrared make fast work of your building’s structural inspections. We use industrial grade drones with high - resolution infrared cameras to accurately document water intrusion, stucco dis-bonding, and cracks on exterior walls. Avoid the need for inspecting buildings from ground level or using swing - stages. High - quality, precise data can be capture on most buildings in 1 to 2 days and will greatly enhance your understanding of your building’s structural condition. This is cutting edge technology that Brady Infrared has developed as part of their infrared building inspection services and is designed to give engineers an initial assessment of a buildings structural integrity so they can make important decisions moving forward.
