Drone Surveys & Inspection Skegness

Drone Surveys Skegness

Here at Drone Site Surveys, we provide the construction industry in Skegness the opportunity to work more efficiently by employing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs/Drones) for inspecting, measuring, and mapping sites, eliminating the need for expensive, time-consuming equipment hire. Carrying out a drone survey in Skegness means you can avoid the costs and complications of scaffolding or cherry pickers for viewing your building or construction site at height. A significant number of our clients often request a drone roof survey, since 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 performed 1000s of drone surveys across Skegness and the broader Lincolnshire area.

Utilising the latest drone inspection technology, we can capture images and videos of your structures from remarkable heights. All our media is in super high resolution, with images and video available in up to 4K. We then support these visuals with a comprehensive report, aiding you and your team in understanding any issues that might necessitate further, more invasive, inspection.

Skegness, a beloved seaside town in Lincolnshire, East Midlands, is known for its sandy beaches and lively atmosphere. Positioned approximately 43 miles east of Lincoln and 22 miles north-east of Boston, Skegness sits on the Lincolnshire coast of the North Sea.

A substantial part of central Skegness, given its resort town status, has specific regulation zones impacting drone flight planning. The area features varied routes for recreational and commercial aviation, and regulations over public spaces which all contribute to the complexity of gaining flight permissions and authorisations in and around Skegness.

There’s also a need to account for no-fly zones such as those around HMP Lincoln in the nearby city, with restrictions from the surface to 164 AGL (Above Ground Level), in place to prevent illicit activities such as airdropping prohibited items.

As a bustling tourist area, Skegness has an extensive transport network with road and rail routes, each presenting unique demands on drone operations. In particular, the rail networks should be factored into planning, as Network Rail enforces specific regulations on drones flying near their property, in addition to the standard CAA rules.

However, the requirement for more planning and authorisation for drone flights in and around urban centres doesn’t imply we’re unable to fly in these areas. Our skilled pilots, backed by our experienced administrative team, collaborate to secure permissions, enabling us to undertake drone-based work even in the most challenging locations!

Roof Surveys

At Drone Site Surveys, we commonly conduct drone roof inspections in Skegness for both residential and commercial properties, including chimney inspections. Whether you’re responding to storm damage, performing routine maintenance, or planning solar panel installations, our seasoned pilots are ready to conduct a comprehensive aerial survey. Suitable for both pitched and flat roofs, our services extend beyond visual inspections to include thermal surveys, which can help identify significant heat loss areas.

Drone Mapping Skegness

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. 

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.

We can provide internal and external scanning, 3D models and other services to help you measure, inspect and report on some of your assets without ever visiting a site.
