Kitec Pipe: It is Like the Formaldehyde of Insulation

Speaker: Mark Cohen, President and Board Member, Jermark Plumbing & Mechanical Services
With over 100,000+ suites in the GTA piped with Kitec pipe from 1996 to 2007, the epidemic is huge. Insurance companies are cracking down by refusing to insure suites with Kitec so it’s time to look for a clean, healthy and durable replacement system. This demonstration will showcase superior PEX piping that is artfully manufactured by Uponor and professionally installed by Jermark.

Aerial Structural and Thermal Analytics
Time: 12:00 p.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Speaker: Jason Eaton, Chief UAV Pilot, Airborne Inspections
There has been an increasing need for inspections of building envelopes using UAV’s (“Unmanned Aerial Vehicles”). UAV’s have the ability to provide both RGB and/or thermal imaging to capture structural anomalies as well as identify heat loss areas. In addition, the Geo Export platform enables users to deliver Radiometric and Volumetric readings for developers in addition to surveying and mapping.
This demo will showcase UAV – Topcon Falcon 8. It has successfully been used for inspecting commercial and residential buildings, historical sites, pipelines and oil rigs. In addition, the software has been developed by Sky-Futures which presents a very concise report to clients that their engineers can use in planning restoration work, a reserve fund study or an ongoing development.
