Rather safe than sorry - Building Infrared ThermographyBroll Namibia ensures building safety with infrared thermography technology“Electrical systems can hide threatening issues that manifest as excessive heat but are not easily detectable and sometimes do not even present any warning signs. Traditional visual and manual inspections are time-consuming, expensive and may not detect underlying problems effectively,” says Martin Shaningwa, Broll Namibia’s Facilities Manager. He adds that anomalies, however, are detectable with an infra-red camera and can indicate electrical resistance, failing components, overloaded equipment, normal wear and tear, design faults or other common problems that, if left unchecked, could lead to costly or disastrous failures. “Broll Namibia employs infrared thermography to proactively identify irregularities in electrical systems, significantly reducing unscheduled outages and losses. This predictive approach allows for early detection and timely intervention.” The process involves analysing energy emitted from objects, allowing Broll Namibia to identify whether the nominal operating conditions are acceptable. “We must factor in surrounding elements, such as light sources and atmospheric conditions, to ensure accurate readings. Anomalies like discoloured cables indicate overheating and the infrared camera shows if equipment is overloaded or if there are loose connections. Inspections should be conducted when all equipment is operational to capture the data under realistic operating conditions."Martin emphasises that Broll Namibia’s Facilities Management places great value on prevention. “Electrical faults can cause fires, leading to significant property damage and – even worse - possible loss of life. Regular infrared inspections help protect assets, potentially lower insurance premiums and enhance overall safety. For property owners, integrating these assessments into their maintenance strategy is essential for business continuity, minimising disruptions and avoiding costly repairs. Preventative and predictive maintenance is a crucial investment.” The training to operate a camera and interpret infrared thermography findings is rare and not offered in Namibia, only South Africa, Europe or the United States. Martin is one of very few certified professionals in Namibia trained to use infrared thermography for building maintenance. Martin holds a Level 1 Electrical Infrared Thermography certification, focusing on advanced skills for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance, particularly for commercial and industrial electrical applications. Contact Broll Namibia today at 061 374 500 or facilities@brollnamibia.com.na to ensure you are always safe rather than sorry.

Very prevalent in the manufacturing industry. Condition Based Monitoring (CBM), done properly and the results accurately interpreted, forms an integral part of any decent comprehensive maintenance program.

    Broll Namibia – Proud partner on the journey of Carl List Mall and Alexander Forbes HouseA trip down memory lane The Carl List Mall and Alexander Forbes House story begins in 1929 when visionary Carl List purchased a property on the corner of Kaiser and Peter Muller Streets (now Independence Avenue and Fidel Castro Street) from Hensel & Callesen. Initially, private residences on this site were demolished to make way for a new building primarily comprising sorting rooms for the Karakul Zentrale, offices and flats. After a fire, the building was refurbished and the prestigious Carl List Haus was constructed in 1965.Landmark refurbishment: 2009/2010The 2009/2010 refurbishment by Broll Namibia marked a significant milestone. Broll Namibia’s Managing Director Karen Keys notes that their project management aimed to maximise the property's commercial potential, transforming it into two distinct entities. The upgrade included a new external façade, replacing steel windows with aluminium, installing centralised air-conditioning and creating a new entrance/retail mall linking the courtyard area with Independence Avenue. Residential flats were converted into prime A-grade office spaces, diversifying the tenant mix on the ground floor with new retailers, making the mall a vibrant commercial hub.Until today Carl List Mall and Alexander Forbes House, which still houses the headquarters of O&L, retain their status as one of the most commanding buildings on Independence Avenue. Interesting Facts Before and after the 2010 refurbishment:From 5,970m² office space to 10,420m² office space. Parking: From 1-level parking structure to a 11-level parkade, the highest circle parkade in Namibia.Broll Namibia: Mastering Property PotentialBroll Namibia's expertise in optimising property potential has been instrumental in transforming Carl List Mall and Alexander Forbes House. Their comprehensive services include leasing, facilities management, property management and development, all designed to enhance the value and functionality of real estate assets.“At Broll Namibia, we continue to exemplify progressive property management, ensuring that iconic buildings like Carl List Mall and Alexander Forbes House maintain their landmark status in Namibia’s CBD,” concludes Karen Keys.

    Water is life, water is food.Without water the earth would be as barren as the moon. Yet, we often take this precious resource for granted. We waste it without a second thought and we pollute it with chemicals, plastics and other harmful substances. It’s time for us to change our ways and start treating water with the respect it deserves.

    Water is life, water is food.For us humans, water is not simply a vital need for our bodies, including bringing nutrients to cells, getting rid of wastes, protecting joints and organs and maintaining body temperature.Water is also a resource we benefit from every day. Think of cooking, cleaning, showering and flushing. Our food, clothes, mobile phones, cars and books all use water in their production. We use water to build our homes, schools and roads and to heat buildings and cool power plants. With the electricity we generate from its movement, we light our cities and our homes. On a hot summer day, we dive into the sea or swimming pool.What would you do without water? Conserve today!
