Drone Surveys & Inspection Lincoln

Drone Surveys Lincoln

At Drone Site Surveys, we empower the construction industry in Lincoln, Lincolnshire, to operate more efficiently by utilising unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs/Drones) for inspections, measurements, and mapping without the hassle and expense of hiring heavy equipment. By opting for a drone survey in Lincoln, the necessity for scaffolding, cherry pickers, or other means to access elevated areas of your building or construction site is negated. A significant number of our clients show particular interest in drone roof surveys, as rooftops are typically the most challenging parts of a building to inspect.

As a drone company approved by the CAA and a Construction Line Gold accredited business, we’ve successfully completed thousands of drone surveys across Lincoln and wider areas of Lincolnshire.

Equipped with the latest drone inspection technology, we are able to provide high-resolution images and videos of your structures at substantial heights, with quality up to 4K. These images are accompanied by a detailed report to help you and your team identify issues that might require further detailed inspection.

Located in the East Midlands, Lincoln is a historic city in Lincolnshire, England, standing on the River Witham. It’s situated 74 miles east of Birmingham and 41 miles northeast of Nottingham, serving as an important regional centre.

Lincoln is uniquely positioned within the EGR313 SCAMPTON airspace, which adds another layer of complexity to drone operations in the area. Additionally, several air traffic restrictions are in place in and around Lincoln, including controlled traffic regions and no-fly zones. A prominent no-fly zone encompasses HMP Lincoln, a high-security establishment, to prevent unauthorized drone activities.

The city also houses significant infrastructure, such as roads and rail networks, each posing unique considerations for drone operations. Network Rail, for instance, imposes its own regulations on drone activities near their properties, which must be considered alongside the standard Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) regulations.

Despite these intricate challenges, our trained pilots, supported by an experienced administrative team, are adept at navigating these complexities. We strive to obtain all necessary permissions, ensuring our drone flights in Lincoln meet regulatory requirements while serving the needs of our clients, even in the most stringent locations. This commitment allows us to deliver essential drone services in this vibrant and historic city.

Roof Surveys

At Drone Site Surveys, we frequently perform drone roof inspections in Lincoln to evaluate their condition. This includes chimney inspections and can be performed on both residential and commercial roofs. Whether you need to inspect after a storm, for routine maintenance, or before installing solar panels, our seasoned pilots can conduct an aerial survey. Our service is equally effective for pitched and flat roofs. Besides a visual inspection, we offer a thermal survey to detect any significant heat loss areas.

Drone Mapping Lincoln

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.

As well as providing detailed reports, drone mapping, inspections and surveys we are available to be an all-around surveyor support service. Our team understand your role as a surveyor and how to make your job on-site easier.
