Smart Façade Inspection Services

Next generation façade inspection

verify the integrity of building structures

Conventional façade inspection can be time, labor and cost intensive. Developed by TÜV SÜD and partners, our next generation smart façade inspection deploys drones with cutting edge high-resolution visual and thermal cameras to accurately scan the exterior of buildings. This service caters to building operators and owners of large high-rise buildings and helps construction companies to ensure façade quality and monitor construction progress of their projects. Our compliant Periodic Façade Inspection (PFI) services will help you meet regulatory requirements, including:

  • Actionable 3D inspection report created by a global team of experts aided by latest Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology and endorsed by qualified professional engineers.
  • Visual inspection of façade carried out by our specialized service drones equipped with multi-modal sensor platform for safe and accurate data collection in complex urban environments.
  • High quality visual images to detect building defects and thermal images to detect hidden defects and tale-tell signs of potential façade failure.
  • Intuitive service portal that enables our clients to monitor defects, plan maintenance services and seamlessly manage their property with the help of latest AI technology.

The inspection is carried out on-site by our professional pilot team with specialized semi-automated service drone. Visual and thermal data collected are transferred securely and privacy preserving to the service platform. The platform gives clients not only access to their inspection reports and related data, but also to services such as a 3D model of their property and advanced defect management services.
