INDUSTRIAL & INSURANCE
What was previously a difficult and expensive task can now be achieved much more cost-effectively using our remotely piloted aerial systems.
In industrial surveys and Insurance surveys there are significant costs savings with using drones, combined with the benefit of not requiring staff to work at heights.
According to Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) Hierarchy of Control Measures, the use of UAVs avoids work at height and its attendant risk; it is the safest method of delivering high-level roof and building surveys.
As a result, drones are now replacing ladders, cherry pickers and scaffolding for inspecting roofs, chimneys and tall buildings whilst also replacing helicopters and light aircraft for site surveys.
Bridges form a key part of our nation’s infrastructure but obtaining accurate condition information of these structures can be highly problematic using tradition methods of working. Not only is gaining access difficult and inefficient, but bridges span many hazardous environments such as rivers, roads and railways.
Using a drone to undertake the inspection eliminates many of these issues.
Photographic condition information can be rapidly obtained for all elements of bridges’ masonry and steelwork.
More recently Drones are being used to help monitor construction site progress and project management on a scale that has been hard to do before.
It is often quicker to use time laps photography to track the progress of a building site and report this back in a visual way to the management team as part of a progress report than create a manual report.
