Paper Abstract

The potential for building thermography within Public Works Canada has been established. Thermography is a building science tool that identifies problems at the design or construction stage before the structure deteriorates and maintenance costs escalate. In addition, this technology is a valuable tool for teaching quality assurance of construction and preventive maintenance. Thermography can be used to teach thermal principles of building and enclosure performance which previously required advanced knowledge of physics and chemistry. Thermography can help provide insight into problems involving building science expertise as required by the building industries, building design and maintenance operations.
