: A virtual model of a building is created in 2-D and 3-D using UAS data and can be viewed from any angle.  Swiping the model allows a user to overlay thermal images to exact locations on the building.

Beachwood, Ohio-based Tremco Roofing partnered with Toronto-based Industrial SkyWorks to use drones equipped with infrared and video cameras to find energy leaks for customers in Canada.

SkyBEAM (Building Envelope Asset Mapping) uses unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) equipped with high-resolution infrared and video cameras to help Tremco Roofing’s customers locate where their facilities may be leaking energy through gaps in the roof, facade or elsewhere, or may have wet insulation, as well as to find and photograph other potential problems on the building.

SkyBEAM's infrared camera graphically depicts energy inefficiencies by showing temperature variations within a building, a result of problems that can lead to increased operating costs, occupant discomfort and other issues. Poor or missing sealing around windows, for example, typically allows energy to escape. On rooftops, wet insulation retains heat longer than dry insulation; wet insulation can cause enormous long-term damage if not removed.
