Workshop on Infrared Thermography

One-day workshop right before the Symposium, especially designed to help you incorporate non-destructive testing in your building surveys.

Always wanted to learn how to capture and interpret infrared thermal imaging (IRT) in monitoring and condition assessments? With more inexpensive camera options now available, IRT is accessible but requires correct training. Attend this affordable day-long workshop with hands-on image capturing and real-time processing of results for accurate deployment of IRT in analyzing existing buildings.
