BUILDING SURVEYING

DRONE SURVEYS

Completing your measured building survey with drone technology delivers multiple advantages to your project. Drone surveys offer great versatility and can be used as a standalone solution or as a complementary add-on service alongside more traditional surveying methods.

Drone surveys are ideal when working on projects where capturing a large amount of data is required or could be used as part of a project where multiple sites all need to be surveyed. Capturing data can be quicker, safer and less intrusive than using other means. We have seen our clients choose drone surveys when looking to carry out surveys for holiday parks and as part of roof inspections.

Data from drone surveys is available in both 2D and 3D formats with a range of additional options available. This could include point cloud data, ortho-rectified photography and fly over video footage, all ensuring you receive a high level of technical detail to support your project. Our drone team is fully compliant with the Civil Aviation Authority regulations for Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems.
