Infrared Home Quality Mark Survey

Thermal imaging surveys for housing developments and new builds, in accordance with the new BRE Home Quality Mark Technical Manual – SD232:2015.

The Home Quality Mark (HQM) is a national standard for new homes, which uses a simple 5-star rating system to provide impartial information from independent experts on a new home’s design, construction quality and running costs. The mark was developed by BRE, and is part of the BREEAM family of quality and sustainability standards.

Continuity of Insulation

Thermal imaging surveys provide a non-destructive assessment of a buildings insulation, highlighting any anomalies.

Thermal Bridging

Thermal imaging cameras can help find areas of significant heat transfer between internal and external elevations.

Thermal Comfort

Detect and accurately locate inward or outward air leakage caused by cracks and unintentional openings.

About the Home Quality Mark

Using a simple overall star rating, the Home Quality Mark gives householders a clear picture of a home’s quality. In addition, indicators that demonstrate the home’s running costs, how it will protect occupants’ health and wellbeing, and its environmental footprint, will help everyone to fully understand its long term quality and performance.

How does it work?

The test and inspection of the integrity of building fabric is carried out post-construction, which includes the quality assurance of continuity of insulation, avoidance of thermal bridging and air leakage pathways. Once the report has been delivered (5-10 days from the date of survey), it’s then passed onto your Home Quality Mark assessor who will submit it as part of your Home Quality Mark application.
