Modern UAV Drones are fast replacing more conventional methods of visual inspection and survey that are both time consuming and costly.

What are the advantages of drones?

  • Faster Inspection Time
  • REAL Cost Savings
  • More detailed inspection and survey results
  • Safer
  • With thermal imaging, they can spot things the naked eye can’t
  • Inspections can be carried our with no or minimum production down time
  • Greater inspection coverage with video and photography
  • GPS Location tracking so future inspections can follow the exact same flight path

Thermal Imaging can provide key insights into a building structural condition that traditional inspections would simply miss

Examples of where drone surveys are becoming the favoured choice

Inspection services like roof surveys which once required scaffolding, cherry pickers and rope access with workers having to conduct surveys at height, can now be done safely and far more quickly using UAV drones.  

Equipped with the latest in image capturing imagery and video recording equipment, not to mention thermal imaging camera, our UAV drones can provide a superior inspection and survey service over these traditional methods with the added benefit of REAL cost savings.

Drone Surveys for Land, Sea & Air

Whether at land of sea, our drones can conduct surveys and inspections in the exact same weather conditions that current ‘at height’ inspection teams and underwater diver teams can work in.  In scenarios where many structures need to be inspected at once (for example a wind farm), our drones can conduct surveys on numerous wind turbines in a single day whereas traditional methods would only be able to carry out the inspection of one or two wind turbines in the same time.

More than one benefit

It is not just about the reduced cost and increased speed of our drone surveys that marks us out as a better alternative to scaffolding and rope access methods of survey.  Our drones can inspect buildings, structures etc from angles and heights that are simply not possible by conventional methods, meaning we can truly offer a unique perspective that has real value.

And the positives do not stop there.  If you require regular surveys conducted on a plot or structure, our drones can follow a predetermined GPS map ‘flight plan’ so that we can inspect structures/land from the exact same heights and angles as previously carried out. This produces invaluable data that can be reviewing and compared to archived data. This can highight developing issues and any defects and issues identified with a structure so that they can be monitored more closely and studied using previous data.

An aerial drone can inspect an entire building structure in minutes. A conventional building inspection would take days.

A real alternative with real benefits

The advantages of using UAV drone surveys for your commercial inspection and surveys purposes are numerous.  Whilst this service may seem like Sci Fi, it is here and now and it is revolutionising the industry.

Balmore Inspection Services are one of Scotland’s leading aerial drone firm.  We provide commercial grade aerial drones for inspection and survey services across all of Scotland as well as the Northern areas of England.  Our drone pilots are fully insured, qualified and certified to pilot in busy populated areas meaning that wherever your inspection needs may be, we can reach them.
