The use of UAV drones in the commercial sector has quickly seen them become a preferable option to traditional methods when it comes to building structure inspection services.

Commercial grade UAV drones are not only safer but they are also faster and more cost effective with real cost savings to be made over methods involving rope access specialists and scaffolding.

The icing on the cake is that UAV drone surveys can produce far superior survey and inspection results that conventional methods. Aerial drones, equipped with HD video and photography capturing technology can capture high resolution imagery from better vantage points and in more detail than anything that can be captured at ground or roof level. And this footage can be live streamed directly to the professionals so that building structural surveys can be conducted more efficiently by those that matter. And if regular inspection is required, we can program our drones to fly on an autonomous flight path mission. That means that they can follow the same flight path every time we are dispatched to provide a date stamped record of your structural inspection. This level of inspection can provide a significant improvement over existing methods and can allow for better monitoring of any structural issues.


Our aerial drones can be used in any of the following areas as a viable and powerful replacement to traditional survey methods:

  • Difficult to access roof areas, buildings and structures due to height and location
  • Fragile and/or unsafe roofs, building and structures
  • Urban areas

  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturing plants
  • Churches
  • Schools
  • Colleges

In the building inspection sector, UAV drones are significantly changing the way that we go about daily business.

From insurance companies that can overlay years of building footage to highlight any changes over time; to demolition contractors who can send drones into an unsafe building, eliminating the risk to human life.
