Drone Surveys & Inspection Stoke
Stoke is the largest city in Staffordshire, with a population of approximately 250,000. Located 40 miles south of Manchester, 45 miles north of Birmingham, on the upper valley of the River Trent, with major road links via the A500 and M6, the city is a popular area for new businesses.
The area around Stoke itself has no airports or airspace restrictions however as Stoke is a very busy area there are numerous transport networks, congested areas, and other considerations. Examples of these would be Stoke Royal Infirmary where not only would the airspace directly around the building require permission but there is also the hazard of helicopter flights for the air ambulance. While these are not identified specifically in airspace restrictions they must come into consideration when planning a flight around this area.
Network Rail have their own regulations regarding drones around their property in addition to CAA regulations.
Drone flights require a great deal of planning and permissions must be gained in order to ensure that all flights are carried out safely and legally. 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 Surveys Stoke
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 Stoke on Trent, 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 the Stoke on Trent and the wider Staffordshire 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.
