As holders of a Remote Pilot Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) licence from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) we are authorised to use a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, also known as a drone) to access difficult to reach areas of tall structures without the need for expensive scaffolding or cherry pickers, and without the need to risk causing additional damage whilst investigating a problem.
We fly a UAV to inspect an inaccessible area
The UAV can get close enough to identify problem areas
Our UAV sends real-time live pictures back to its controller and the client is able to view these images on a high-contrast screen in order to direct the inspection as required. The UAV can be instructed to take highly detailed 20 megapixel photographs of problem areas and it can also be asked to record moving images of up to 4K definition where desired. This information can then be passed digitally to surveyors, architects and building maintenance companies for assessment, enabling them to submit their quotations based on unambiguous imagery.
It's also possible to arrange for periodic inspections to measure structural degradation over time and to monitor a potential problem area whilst postponing remedial action until absolutely necessary.
Property inspections are available for a fixed price - see costs page for further information.
