Drone Surveys & Inspection Scarborough

Drone Surveys Scarborough

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 Scarborough, 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 Scarborough and the wider North Yorkshire 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.

Scarborough is a large seaside town on the North Sea coast of North Yorkshire. Scarborough has a population of 61000 and is the largest holiday resort on the Yorkshire coast.

A major tourist destination, Scarborough lies 45 miles southeast of Middlesbrough, 40 miles northeast of York and 40 miles north of Hull.

Although the closest major airport to Scarborough is Durham Tees Valley, there are a number of other local airspace restrictions which should be highlighted.

Within North York National Park lies Flyingdale HIRTA (High-Intensity Radio Transmission Area) which can affect flights around this area, with Staxton Wold HIRTA located to the south of Scarborough by the villages of Staxton and Willerby.

An area of increased risk should be taken into account at Bridlington where you will find the Yorkshire Skydive Centre and a popular parachuting area.

As a busy seaside town and tourist destination, Scarborough has many local factors which should be given due consideration when planning your flight, with congestion being an important factor. As with all large towns and cities, there will be numerous local considerations that should be factored into your planning along with the usual concerns when flying around towns and cities.

It is also important that rail networks should always be factored into your planning as Network Rail has their own regulations regarding drones around its property in addition to CAA regulations.

While drone flights require greater planning and authorisation in and around town centres, 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 Scarborough

If you don’t require a report you may just wish to inspect your site in Scarborough. Our pilots can work with you or your surveyors to inspect the whole building or focus on the 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 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. Not only that, from site visits to the delivery of images, can be done within a 48-hour turnaround. Our drone inspections are delivered via a secure, password-secure URL for you to share with your team, suppliers or contractors that may be carrying out repairs.

Drone Mapping Scarborough

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. 

Surveyor Support Services

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.
