Drone Surveys & Inspection Chester

Drone Survey Chester

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 across Chester, 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 1000s of drone surveys across the Chester and the wider Cheshire 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.

Based in the North West of England, on the River Dee, Chester is located approximately 15 miles north of Wrexham and 20 miles south of Liverpool via the Wirral Peninsula and the M53 and is the largest City in Cheshire West and Chester. Surrounded by Hawarden Airport to the West, Capenhurst to the North West and Liverpool CTR (Controlled Traffic Region) to the North East, with Waverton Airfield being a popular microlight strip to the South West. Being a hub for trains travelling across from Manchester, Warrington and through to North Wales there are many train lines converging on the city all of which 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 Inspections Chester

If you don’t require a report you may just wish to inspect your site in Chester. Our pilots can work with you or your surveyors to inspect the whole building or focus on sections most important to you. With our technology we have systems such as live streaming allowing viewing by wearing a virtual reality headset. Allowing you to attend the site and direct our pilots to inspect areas you wish. The remote streaming allows you and your team to watch the drone inspection take place. Having direct communication with the pilot you can again point us in the right direction or get a closer more detailed look at your assets.

With our drone inspections, we deliver all footage in high quality with resolutions up to 4K available. Inspecting your roof and assets from the air using drones provides a cheaper, faster and more reliable way of inspection without the need for scaffolding, cherry pickers or other expensive equipment.

Roof Surveys

A common service we provide here at Drone Site Surveys is the inspection of roofs across Chester to assess their condition. As part of this we will also carry out a chimney inspection  We can carry this out on both domestic and commercial roofs.  Whether recent storm damage has occurred and you’d like to inspect, you’re carrying out regular maintenance checks, or you are considering installing solar panels, our experienced pilots can come and carry out an aerial survey of your roof.  This can be useful for both pitched and flat roofs. As well as a visual inspection, we can supply a thermal survey to inspect for any areas of significant heat loss.

Drone Mapping Chester

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.

Chester City Council Policies on Drone/UAV Flight and Operation

Cheshire West and Chester Council receive occasional requests from TV and Film crews for drone flights/filming

Most are for Chester City Centre which is a difficult area for safe flying. Each request is shared for consideration by the events and highways team.

At present, there are no filming licenses required. Our primary consideration is for CAA permissions but also potential privacy issues for residents and pedestrians.

The Council doesn’t have separate regulations we follow guidelines from Creative England and the CAA in addition to comments from Highways and events when flight areas are requested.
