Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance has introduced SkyBEAM™ (Building Envelope Asset Mapping) for use throughout Canada. SkyBEAM is a groundbreaking program that uses unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with high-resolution thermographic (infrared) and video cameras to help locate where facilities may be leaking energy through gaps in the roof, façade or elsewhere. It can also find wet insulation and other potential problems on a building.
