Our Core Inspection Services


drone inspections for land, sea & aerial surveys

Why is visual inspection so important?

Visual inspection of building structures, power lines, road and rail networks, bridges and communication towers (to name just a few) is critical to ensure that these structures, communication devices and transportation links are operating to as close to 100% efficiency as possible.

Regular visual inspection can spot these developing issues early and allow companies to plan repairs and servicing that are carried out at preferred times to minimise disruption. Not to mention the cost savings of catching these things early. A minimal maintenance weld repair on a storm damaged power line support is a lot cheaper than having to build a completely new power line support. Regular visual inspections conducted by drone survey are the best solution to provide this.
