Aerial Drone Building Surveys

Visual Inspections

Building surveys, maintenance inspections and schedules of condition on commercial and industrial property should all include a thorough inspection of the roof and high-level fabric of the building. However, carrying out a visual inspection of difficult to reach and fragile structures is time-consuming and expensive. Now there is a better alternative!

By using an aerial drone, flown by a licensed pilot who is also a Chartered Building Surveyor, inspection times, costs and safety risks can all be significantly reduced. In addition, high-definition images and/or video footage can be provided in accordance with client requirements.

Drone Surveys
The Key Benefits of Using a Drone
  • Significantly reduced access costs
  • Issues are instantly identified and quantified.
  • Highlights building defects which would otherwise not be identified
  • Eliminates risks associated with working at height.
  • Quick deployment with minimal disruption and inconvenience
  • Higher quality images tailored to specific client needs
  • Improved client presentations and reports
Drone Applications
  • Schedules of Condition
  • Dilapidation surveys
  • Roof surveys
  • Defect inspections
  • Progress monitoring
  • Specification compliance
  • Pre-acquisition surveys
  • Pre-survey inspections for accurate tendering
  • Post contract inspection and snagging for effective contract retention and completion
  • Life cycle analysis
  • Aerial marketing and promotional photography
Using the Drone
  • All flights are planned in advance and carried out with strict pre-flight checks and risk assessments
  • Setting up the drone on site takes less than 20 minutes
  • Average inspection time is around 30 minutes.
  • A large area can be covered in that time, viewing specific sections of the building from a variety of angles.
  • The aircraft can be operated within large properties and can also manoeuvre in tight locations
  • The drone can be flown to a maximum height of 400ft (120m) and a distance of 500m, with the pilot maintaining a clear line of sight with the drone at all times.
