Architecture and Construction

“Get some perspective…”

Each generation builds further into the sky. Our growing population needs to accommodate itself vertically to cram itself into the bustling capitals of industry with each passing year and so our architecture must do so too. Before we create, we must plan. As we create, we must inspect and once created; things must be monitored and maintained.

Geo-Mapping

Combining high-quality imaging technology with controllable aviation enables surveyors to get the lay of the land. Out-of-date satellite images can create huge and expensive pitfalls further down the line in a building project if important impressions on the land are missed. Pre-determined coordinates allow a drone to take accurate and good-quality pictures of land areas that may have changed over time; the Unmanned Aerial technology team on the ground can then translate and document them accordingly for the desired purpose.

Aerial Photography of Property

A very useful application of aerial imaging technology is to safely and accurately inspect the structural integrity of tall buildings. This is very useful for Building regulation checks, insurance claims and anyone responsible for signing off on a projects completion. The Unmanned Aerial Technology team are able to assist estate agents and land owners in determining land boundaries. The property industry makes use of aerial imaging when large land areas are coming onto the market; a bird’s-eye view of an especially large land mass allows valuing and border-defining much easier.

Power Line and Pipe Line Inspection

It’s not only the places in which we live and work that need to be kept up to code but also the structures that provide them with utilities. Turbines, power-lines and radio-towers spend their existence facing everything that the elements have to throw at them and this can take its toll so aerial imaging that can be controlled professionally from the ground would be an efficient way to inspect the structures and document their degradation.
