Drone Surveys & Inspection Brighton

Drone Surveys Brighton

Here at Drone Site Surveys, we enable the construction industry to work smarter by using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs/Drones) to inspect, measure, and map areas without the need for time-consuming and expensive equipment hire. By having a drone survey in Brighton, you negate the need for scaffolding, cherry pickers, or other ways of viewing your building or construction site at height.

As a CAA approved drone company and a Construction Line Gold accredited business, we have undertaken 100s of drone surveys across the Brighton and the East Sussex region

Using the most modern drone equipment we can provide images and video of your structures at incredible heights. All of our media is in super high resolution with images and video available up to 4K. We can then back these images with a report for you and your team to understand issues that require further invasive inspection.

Brighton, located on the southern coast of England, approximately 47 miles south of London and 65 miles east of Southampton, is a very popular tourist destination attracting 7.5 million visitors per day and labelled “the happiest place to live in the UK”!!

Brighton City airport is based as Shoreham-on-Sea, 10 miles west of Brighton, with Devils Dyke to the north-west of the city a popular hang-gliding spot. To the east of the city lies Hidden Valley Flying Park, where remote control aircraft and FPV (First Person View) flying takes place.

Being such a popular destination for tourists, there are a number train lines converging on the city which, along with other factors including congestion due to the popularity of the location, must be taken into account when planning flights around the airspace. Network Rail have their own regulations regarding drones around their property in addition to CAA regulations.

While drone flights require greater planning and authorisation in and around restricted zones, this does not mean that we are unable to fly in these areas. Our trained pilots, alongside our experienced administrative team, will work together to gain the permissions to carry out work in the trickiest of locations!

Drone Mapping Brighton

Along with our surveys and inspection, we can provide in-depth mapping for your site. Using high-quality images, high precision GPS, and photogrammetry, we can map your site so that you don’t need to visit. 

This highly detailed map can help solve clarity issues along with being able to see contour lines, and accurate borders (accurate to +/- 1cm). These can then be overlaid onto images to allow you to build up the ultimate picture of your construction site. You can even combine our drone mapping with construction site progress and time-lapse video to provide you with an ultimate overview of your construction progress from start to finish.
