Inspection: How can a Drone / UAV help?

There are many benefits that come with Global Drone Surveys for surveys and inspections. Our highly experienced and qualified pilots fly complex inspections and surveys in the most safe and reliable way. Their expertise in handling UAVs in complex airspace is unrivalled. With our years of experience, we are able to provide the most accurate data possible to our clients. We have a wealth of experience in the fields of surveying, building and infrastructure inspections, mapping and aerial photography. We’ve performed countless surveys for both commercial and infrastructure clients across the UK and Europe. We are able to provide you the most accurate data possible.


Our UAVs are much safe than traditional methods of industrial inspection. They are also more efficient and accurate, which means that we can get the job done in less time and with fewer risks. Additionally, the high resolution of drones cameras allows you to get a much better view of the area being surveyed or inspected. This can help us reduce the risk of mistakes and make the process more repeatable. Ultimately, using Global Drone Surveys and inspections can save you time and money while ensuring that the job is done right.


Drone roof inspections are a safer, cheaper and quicker alternative to traditional methods.


They can cover large areas in a short amount of time and don't require scaffolding or the expensive  hire of Mobile Aerial Work Platforms and platform lifts


This makes them ideal for inspecting large commercial roofs, listed building roofs and domestic roofs

Our Drones are able to quickly and accurately identify potential problems with assets such as cell phone towers, masts, and bridges.


This information can then be used to make necessary repairs or replacements before the asset fails. This helps to protect the public from potentially dangerous situations and saves time and money in the long run.


Drones also offer a safer option for inspectors, as they are not exposed to the same risks as those who inspect assets manually. 


This is especially important when inspecting high-risk assets such as bridges or cell phone towers. By using drones for asset inspection, we can protect your employees and reduce the overall risk involved in asset inspection.


When it comes to updating stakeholders on the progress of a construction project, monthly done flights are an accurate and time-saving way to do it.


Not only does this method provide great progress reports, but it also allows managers to track the build and see potential issues early on. This is especially beneficial for site managers who need to progress and hazards.

Our Experience and Qualifications


We have the experience and equipment needed to operate in complex industrial environments which often have unseen hazards. 


All our operators have real world experience of operating in some of the UK’s most demanding site environments including COMHA sites, SWAH operations, as well as operational involvement in post-disaster building triage for overseas government rescue. 

All our staff are fully compliant with expected levels of site safety including P.P.E., Safe Working At Height Qualifications, Confined Space Working, Trauma Care, water safety power boat operation, appointed persons mobile plant, and all our vehicles are site compliant including amber lighting and rear chevron markings.


How we operate

For every site we visit to conduct work, we carry out a series of detailed pre-flight assessments to ensure a safe, legal operation.

We gain airspace permissions and clearance as well as ground-based permissions and permits where required.

All risk assessments and Method Statements relating to the aerial operations can be requested by our clients for their own records. We provide the aerial video and/or photography to fit your desired specification.


The media content can then be viewed by your inspection officer/surveyor at their convenience.

Post Editing & Data Delivery

Raw images and/or videos are carefully edited to maximise clarity and to focus / highlight areas of particular interest. 

We aim to deliver the collected data within 24 hours of site completion. Data can be securely downloaded via our hosting client, or alternatively posted via USB Device at no extra cost.

All data is transferred via our secure company transfer system this allows your subject matter experts to review the results quickly anywhere in the world.

Drone / UAV Survey

From gaining site situational awareness to delivering Photomosaic & Digital Elevation Models we can help with your project

Survey: How can a Drone / UAV help?

Online satellite imagery can be out-dated by up to 6 years and can be unreliable in planning and analysis needs. Drone survey imagery is typically 20 times the resolution of Google Earth, allowing for greater planning detail and when augmented by our 3D mapping capability, provides ground representation to the smallest detail.

A drone offers a number of advantages over more traditional data capture techniques:

•Data is captured from the air, very quickly

•Resolutions can be as high sub 1cm per pixel

•Data captured can be processed into Photomosaics

•Data captured can be processed into 3D models

Reducing the time spent on the ground means staff safety is improved by minimising risk to teams when measuring sites such as quarries, unstable slopes and transportation routes.
