This multi-partner project will investigate the use of RPAS to model the thermal efficiency of buildings.

Fortis BC and the BC Housing Research Centre have provided funding to investigate the use of RPAS to detect and quantify methane leaks and to experiment with 3D modeling of thermal building efficiency. InDro Robotics and Aerometrix have come onboard with equipment and in-kind funding for the methane detection project. RDH Building Consultants, along with Joe Cosh from Facilities and Campus Development, are the partners on the thermal efficiency investigation.
