Nicolette le Roux – Workstream Construction

Yarlington Housing Group approached IRT Surveys because they offered a unique service for assessing our housing assets using infra-red thermography and because there was limited data around the quality of the wall insulation of our properties. IRT helped us by thermally surveying our entire stock and integrating the information into a comprehensive database which we are incorporating into our new 2020 Fuel Poverty Plan. We are able to interact with the database using their online tools in order to answer the ‘what if’ questions when considering fabric alterations. One thing I liked was their ability to quickly understand our requirements and to deliver the project on time and to budget. I found the experience positive and engaging; IRT did a brilliant job of carrying out a comprehensive thermal image stock survey which provided an actual picture of our stock portfolio’s thermal performance.

Julian Scott – Yarlington HA

All requests from UUDS to IRT Survey’s staff were dealt with in a competent, courteous and professional manner from initial enquiry to survey completion. UUDS will endeavour to promote IRT Surveys to other clients.

James Finnigan – Fishers Services (Perth)

IRT have carried out a number of site surveys for E.ON and were carried out in a very professional manner. The information we received back in the reports were very informative and useful in identifying areas that required further analysis work being carried out.

Jane Lomas – E-ON

Shaun Buchan – DTZ

Kim Hunter – Clackmannanshire Council

Using IRT surveys we pinpointed key areas of roof and elevation repairs producing savings both in investigation and abortive works on a project with a restricted budget.  IRT were both swift and competitive in providing a quality report which was ultimately passed to the works Contractor

IRT Surveys have been excellent, from their initial proposals through to mobilisation and realisation of the concept and therefore we would have no hesitation in recommending them

Arthur McKay Building Service

IRT Surveys completed the surveys in a timely manner and the quality of their final reports is excellent.  These allowed us to highlight areas of concern in the sites and focus our recommendations on energy efficiency in the most cost effective way for our client. 

 

Arthur McKay

We approached IRT Surveys to discuss the initial concept of conducting infrared thermography reports and were very impressed with their professional manner and technical capabilities.  Their staff is trained to the highest industry standards and therefore the overall package that they offer suited our needs.  They inspired confidence in that nothing was too much trouble for them and their flexibility and willingness to work with us and our end client was first class.

 

Arthur McKay Building Services

This Council has worked with IRT Surveys for the past three years, during which time they have consistently provided a reliable service.  Their clear reports have helped us identify those properties to target for insulation upgrades in order to meet the Scottish Housing Quality Standards across our Council housing stock.  We will be working with IRT Surveys again in the future and I have no hesitation recommending them.

Aberdeen City Council

I would like to pass on my thanks and appreciation for the quick turnaround from the initial enquiry to the completion of the survey work; this certainly helps us in securing further work of this nature. I would have no hesitation in employing IRT Surveys in the future and would recommend them to any prospective client both in the UK and abroad.

Peter Sayers – Can Middle East LLC

IRT Surveys completed the report as requested and provided our clients with a comprehensive and confidential report within three working days which has enabled us to put in place a repair procedure.

Our client has asked me to pass on their appreciation of the fast response of IRT Surveys for carrying out the survey and professional way it was executed.
