    Qualified Surveyors

    Our building surveyors are all qualified and hold a range of varying qualifications from HND, to BSc, MSc and PhD in building practices and structural design. 


    A professional drone survey can reduce the cost of access equipment considerably. It reduces the amount of health and safety required and eliminates inconvenience, cost & time. especially when carrying out Roof & Chimney Aerial Inspection Surveys.

    Carried out by a qualified Building Surveyor, the results provide an accurate report along with detailed recommendations for any issues discovered during the assessment.


    The annual spend generated from the hire of access equipment alone was £500,000,000.00 last year. Much of this cost could be reduced significantly with the use of aerial drone surveys. 

    Free up your budget or meet cost-cutting demands by enquiring about the benefits of our aerial drone inspections.

    With supplier costs spiralling, now is a good time to contact us and discuss the money-saving options we can offer. 


    On average, the cost of a chimney inspection using a boom lift can start from £1,500.00 per day including labour costs.

    A drone inspection carried out by a qualified CAA-approved drone pilot and Building Surveyor can start at £300 and the time required is a fraction of what is required using mechanical access equipment.

    Roof & Chimney Aerial Inspection Surveys

    Prior to legal aerial inspections, using UAV’s to assess a roof, chimney or other high structure was an expensive and costly exercise.

    With our extensive range of professional hi-tech equipment and fully licensed pilots and surveyors, inspections of high structures such as roofs, chimneys, churches and towers, no longer require expensive scaffolding.

    Furthermore, there is no longer a need for unsightly mechanical access equipment.

    After our pre planning and flight assessment, we will be able to provide you with high resolution images and high definition film of your high structure aerial survey.

    With the equipment and large operational screen, we are able to see live footage from the UAV, and therefore obtain the exact photographs and film required.

    • CAA approved & insured
    • 30+ years Building Surveying experience
    • The latest DJI drones and survey equipment used

    Our experienced qualified building surveyors are trained and certified UAV pilots.

    We will undertake the initial ground flight assessment, obtain the required aviation permissions, and conduct the flight in accordance with the CAA regulations.

    This confirms that the project is undertaken in a safe and legal manner.

    We conclude your high structure survey with a fully detailed report of our inspection, accompanied by the relevant images and video to assist in rectifying any issues found.
