Fast and cost effective aerial drone surveys for building inspections using thermal imaging and HD photography.

Building Inspection Services were once a time consuming and costly process that required a team of ‘At Height’ specialists rope access personnel and scaffolding construction costs.

Those days are now over thanks to the advancement of modern commercial drone surveys that we can use for drone surveys of building structures.

Aerial Building Sureys can be a fast and cost effective method of regularly checking a high rise building structure for any developing issues.

When it comes to conventional building inspection, there are so many things that this inferior method of inspection can miss. From gaps in roofing insulation caused by storm damage to leaking pipes and cracks in the building structure causing and unseen build up of damp. All of these issues were commonly missed by conventional methods but through drone surveys, we can now spot them more accurately.

Our commercial drones, equipped with state of the art thermal imaging technology can locate these issues, capture them in digital format and create digital reports on the issues which can be assessed by experts ranging from architects to surveyors, builders to roofers and structural engineers, damp specialists etc.
