We provide building inspection surveys. Our drones can fly, photograph and inspect dangerous or hazardous places that would normally require expensive cherry pickers and scaffolding. No one leaves the ground so you do not have to worry about the HSE - “Working at Height” health and safety regulations. This is very useful if the roof or structure is unsound or has difficult or complex access. We can do high level aerial surveys from ground level to 400ft.
Drone Photography Experts offer a very cost effective, quick solution for drone aerial building surveys compared more traditional methods. This includes Land surveying using autonomous mapping drones, drone inspection of hard to reach areas. We do work for property developers, estate agents, property owners, leasehold tenants, chartered surveyors, consultants, local councils and religious organisations. Our projects can include listed buildings, retail parks, churches, industrial sites, wind turbines, solar farms, towers and landmark buildings.
We carry spare pre-charged batteries on each survey. It only takes a few minutes to change the battery and get back in air. So, we are able to fly all day with very little disruption.
All of our clients have access to their survey report, video and images via the cloud or memory stick, so you can view on you own laptop, tablet or PC.
You can zoom in to inspect brickwork, lightning conductors, stonework, restoration, chimneys, weather vanes, roof tiles, lead work, asbestos and roof valleys, for full analysis in your own time and in your own office.
By providing the above services Drone Photography Experts are mitigating dangerous conditions in the world of construction, nothing is more paramount than the safety of the workers with boots on the ground.
Our CAA flight planning and risk assessment will be done prior to our arrival on site, to ensure strict safety procedures and the safety of the public at the flight location. It only takes around 15-20 minutes to set up the drone on site for flight.
This rapid deployment will minimise any potential disruption to residents or staff, with no damage to property or surroundings. This will save you significant time, expense and overall helps with reducing your carbon footprint for procurement and sustainability. All of our drones are charged using only solar power. Our DJI drones carry cameras using the best gyro-stabilised gimbals to produce ultra-sharp HD 4K video and 20 megapixels still images.
