Drone Surveys & Inspection Grimsby

Drone Surveys Grimsby

At Drone Site Surveys, we help the construction industry to streamline its operations through the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs/Drones) for inspecting, measuring, and mapping areas, thus eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming equipment rental. By choosing to have a drone survey in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, you bypass the need for scaffolding, cherry pickers, or other methods of examining your building or construction site from high up. A significant number of our clients are specifically interested in drone roof surveys, as the roof is typically the most challenging part of a building to inspect.

As a CAA approved drone company and a Construction Line Gold accredited business, we have successfully carried out thousands of drone surveys across Grimsby and the surrounding areas in Lincolnshire.

We use the most up-to-date drone inspection technology to produce images and videos of your structures at impressive heights. All our media is available in ultra-high resolution, with images and video attainable up to 4K. We then support these images with a comprehensive report for you and your team, helping to identify areas that require further detailed inspection.

The bustling seaport city of Grimsby, which is located in North East Lincolnshire, Eastern England, has a varied terrain that is perfect for drone flying. Drone pilots have access to uncommon shooting and surveying opportunities according to its history—from a mediaeval market town to a significant fishing port—and the mix of industrial and residential regions. There is a constant need for drone services in this bustling administrative centre.

Drone activities in Grimsby, like the rest of the UK, must abide by Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) rules, which include keeping the drone within line of sight, keeping it at a safe distance from people and structures, and not flying it higher than 400 feet. Commercial drone operators must also have a Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) that has been granted by the CAA.
