Key Benefits of Drone Surveys
Safety: Certain areas of a building, such as rooftops or high floors, may be difficult or hazardous to access manually. Using a drone for surveying can help avoid the potential risk of injury or other accidents that could arise from attempting to access these areas.
Detailed Inspection: Drones can capture high-resolution images and video that can provide a detailed inspection of the building’s exterior and interior, which can be particularly helpful for identifying issues that are difficult to see or access from the ground.
Accessible Data Collection: A drone survey can collect data from hard-to-reach areas, such as the tops of chimneys or the undersides of bridges, providing more complete and accurate information than would be possible with traditional surveying methods.
Efficiency: Drone surveys can be conducted quickly and efficiently, reducing the time and resources needed for a traditional survey. This can be particularly helpful when surveying areas that are difficult to access, as it can save time and reduce the risk of delays or complications.
Minimal Disruption: Our drone is small – under 250g! It is non-invasive and you will hardly notice it is even there.
No expensive scaffolding / cherry pickers: Traditional means of access would involve scaffolding / towers or cherry pickers which can prove extremely costs and often disproportionate for the reason for the survey. Thankfully there is no need for any temporary access with our drone surveys.
Environmentally Friendly: Drones create minimal carbon emissions running on electricity and are far better for the planet than trucks that may be involved with more intrusive and expensive temporary access systems.
