UAV Aerial Inspection

We carry out aerial inspections and land surveys using the latest, most innovative technology.

Our Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) are able to fly and inspect most structures whether it's a flare stack, wind farm or Church steeple - all these can be inspected without the need to set foot on a ladder or scaffold.

Drone Inspection Examples

Typically commissioned by surveyors, building companies and facilities managers to take high definition photographs and video.


We can fly over a roof and position the craft using GPS technology to clearly photograph potential problem areas.


You can then take your time to study and enlarge a photo or freeze frame the video on the desired evidence.

This can be quicker, safer and less expensive than traditional methods.

The location or structural integrity may prevent human access.

Cherry pickers and lift baskets may have access issues and height limitations.

Scaffolding is a large undertaking which can be unsightly and undesirable for the client.

Our (UAV) Drone Cam can obtain the information required with little or no impact and within minutes of arriving on site.

With GPS systems within the craft we are able to take photographs at a specific height, looking in a specific direction and a latitude and longitude accuracy of +/- 2 metres.


As size and pilot safety are no longer restricting factors – we fly anywhere from the ground up to 400ft.
