Drone surveys take clients to new heights


One of the latest pieces of technology improving the building and construction sector are drones. These lightweight aerial vehicles are ideal for surveying tall buildings, including roofs, as well as producing 3D mapping, alongside quick and accurate measurements. Our dedicated in-house aerial surveyor provides fast and precise coverage of your asset.

Surveying eyes in the skies

We know that securing an accurate survey of your assets, quickly, is essential in the world of commercial property which is why we have invested in a dedicated drone surveying service, which can provide more than a close up shot of a roof defect. 

We can provide live surveys on site, recorded videos of inspections, as well as produce 3D mapping of assets and topographical surveys. Through high-definition imagery we can instantly measure elevation, area and volume and provide editable CAD drawings for clients to help them understand the opportunities available from the asset. 

Drone technology has made building surveying a much more efficient and smoother process, shortening the time it takes to conduct a survey by 80 per cent, providing 360 degree access to almost every part of a building, as well as more detailed assessments of defects. The technology can also be used to produce 3D printed models of projects and plans, helping to bring them to life for your key stakeholders.

In addition, using first person view drones we can produce internal and external fly by videos for use in surveys as well as video marketing materials, and also build virtual tours of projects. 

Our services include, but are not limited to:

Roof and elevated ceiling surveys
3D mapping and measurements
Topographic surveys
Virtual tours
First person view videos for marketing purposes
