Re-roofing more than one-million square feet over the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, can be a daunting and expensive proposition.
Orange County staff needed an accurate assessment of the amount of existing wet insulation present prior to the new roof application. Florida’s wet weather conditions did not allow for much dry time to survey the massive rooftop, so the project team selected Brady Infrared to apply its technology and expertise to expedite the massive maintenance undertaking.
Brady Infrared began with an aerial infrared survey to provide a large-scale thermal blueprint of the existing roof system. The infrared imagery revealed thermal anomalies typical of wet roof insulation and helped the project team narrow down its investigation to specific locations on the roof that required more detailed analysis. Brady Infrared directed the work of licensed roof contractor to core cut the roof in precise locations to verify wet insulation identified by the infrared imagery data.
The innovative Brady Infrared approach and its accuracy cut the roof inspection timeframe in half, saving valuable time and money for the county. Less than two percent of the roof area slated for construction was found to have wet insulation, as a result of the Brady Infrared inspection.
Using innovative data collection combined with advanced thermal imaging cameras, Brady Infrared provided Orange County comprehensive aerial coverage and security to address a massive maintenance project and keep the users of its convention center dry.
The very first problem Mr Brady fourn prevented one of our largest block plants from shutting down for several days. The amount of dollar saved from this single find has more than paid for his services ever since.
Without question, their knowledge and experience with these Predictive Maintenance tools has saved us many thousands of dollars by avoiding costly and unplanned electrical failures, especially on our high-voltage switchgear.
Keys Energy Services (KEYS) relies on the knowledge and expertise of Brady Infrared to help us target and prioritize repair actions on problems they discover. The Brady Infrared team conducts and interprets Infrared and Corona inspections for us [...]
Brady Infrared has provided infrared services for our hospital for several years. We have utilized their expertise for scanning electrical equipment and roofs at our main facility and other properties throughout Martin County.
We carefully vet our subcontractors due to the sensitivity of our work to methods and procedures of evidence collection and our emphasis on the quality and reliability of data to be used to support expert testimony. [...] I highly recommend Brady Infrared.
Apprehensive at first, but a firm believer now in the validity of a corona inspection. Found three polymer suspension insulators that would have resulted in transmission operation failures. Money well spent!!
