Progress Reporting

We gather 1080P or 4K aerial footage and high-resolution images as part of our drone construction services. It can be hosted online or transferred to the client at any time. This gives an instant, unique perspective of the construction site. The hosting is online via password protection with a private URL. Many clients use the footage we capture as an audit trail for payment milestones and financing of their projects. The ability to easily share project progress with third parties and financial institutions can significantly speed up the process. 

We value our client’s privacy and ensure we are GDPR compliant.  

Whole Site Mapping

The Aerial Mapping process involves capturing a series of images in a grid pattern to cover the extent of the site. We then process these images and “stitch” them into one large site map. This can be transferred to the client or hosted online for easy sharing with teams and suppliers. 

 We can also date stamp and customise these maps to show the site’s progress over time.

Contact us today, and we will send you a link to a sample map.

Aerial Survey

This is now faster and safer as all data is gathered without shutting down the site or putting surveyors in harm’s way. The speed of data collection allows for quicker decision-making; we can have these surveys turned around in hours, if required. 

Health and Safety Audits

Using drones, we record site activity during normal operations. This has many benefits in improving site safety and reducing hazards and accidents.

  • Aerial perspective allows you easily see what’s not obvious from the ground
  • No disruption to the site – audit is done during the full activity
  • Capture “real” activity on site – not pre-warned inspections
  • Reduces risk to safety officers by not having them in harm’s way

Time-lapse Cameras

Construction Time Lapse CameraFixed cameras on site capture still images every number of seconds or minutes over long periods. This gives a record of progress from start to finish and can be configured to work during specific work hours. We offer several solutions from the lower end to our high-end solar-powered offering with 4G connectivity for real-time remote access. 

Why use a Drone Service Provider?

Many companies have supplied project managers or individuals on-site with a drone, and without the proper training and regulatory knowledge, not only are they putting their health and safety practices at risk, they may fall foul of the IAA regulator.

We work with some of the industry’s leading construction and development companies, providing drone construction services to local and global based-companies.

Engaging an aerial service provider is proven to increase efficiency and safety on-site and keep projects on track. In many cases, construction progress can be ahead of schedule through efficiencies in surveying over traditional methods. Our aerial photography, site mapping and video of your construction project will give you a new and unique aspect and appreciation of the progress.

Site Security Audits

An often overlooked aspect when sites are being set up is the safety of the equipment. An aerial site security assessment can show weak and vulnerable entry points. Surrounding vulnerabilities can lead to theft or damage on-site. 

Having routine construction drone services such as Mapping and inspecting construction sites provide a point-in-time reference for security managers and insurance purposes. 

Our drone pilots are the ultimate professionals and have completed safe pass courses for working in the construction sector. We take care of all elements of the drone operation, planning, executing and processing the data.
