Drone Photography/video Services

We produce high quality aerial drone photography and filming using the latest GPS enabled multi-rotor UAV drones fitted with state of the art cameras. Our team are fully qualified as commercial drone operators, with (CAA) “Permission for Commercial Operations” (PFCO) enabling us to safely fly our drones in the UK for day and night work

Aerial Survey Work

Using our state of the art drones, we are able to provide a cost efficient service for our clients to easily gather data and assess structural condition to implement maintenance programmes. We have dual camera drones that can carry out close inspection tasks and thermal imaging at the same time. Our non invasive mission planning allows us to carry out the inspection task with minimal disruption and with very low HSE risk.


Photogrammetry Mapping

Using our state of the art drones and GPS Aeropoints we capture high resolution visual data to create millimetre accurate models of terrain and buildings for mapping and measurement analysis
