Drone Surveys & Inspection Glasgow
Drone Survey Glasgow
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 Glasgow, 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 Glasgow and the rest of Scotland.
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 on the River Clyde, the city of Glasgow is Scotland’s most populated city. The city is surrounded by Glasgow International Airport and two other small airfields so operating drones in this area operators must be aware of low flying aircraft. The city sits within a Class D airspace due to this high level of aircraft activity.
Network Rail have their own regulations regarding drones around their property in addition to CAA regulations. Drone flights require planning to ensure all permissions required are applied for and secured. Our experienced pilots and admin teams work together to secure the correct permissions for each flight carried out. Whether it be an airport, sports venue, prison, hospital, National Rail exclusion zone, or any other stakeholder that requires permission to be obtained from, our backroom team can secure.

Drone Mapping Glasgow
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 on to 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.

Drone/UAV Flight and Operation in Glasgow
Glasgow Council receives occasional requests from TV and Film crews for drone flights/filming.
Most are for Glasgow 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 licences required. Our primary consideration is for Civil Aviation Authority 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, this also covers Scotland.
