Drone Surveys & Inspection in Warrington

Drone Surveys Warrington

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 you negate the need for scaffolding, cherry pickers or other expensive and time costly ways of viewing your building or construction site at height.  With a drone, it is quick, and effective, and allows you to be able to reach and see areas that may be inaccessible with a cherry picker.

As a CAA-approved drone company and a Construction Line Gold accredited business, we have undertaken 1000s of drone surveys across Warrington and the wider North West 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 4K video. We can then back these images with a report for you and your team to understand issues that require further invasive inspection.

Warrington is a large town and unitary authority area in the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England, on the banks of the River Mersey. It is 20 miles east of Liverpool, and 16 miles west of Manchester

There are three major airspace restrictions in the area at John Lennon Airport to the west, Manchester International to the east, and Barton airfield to the north.

The usual considerations should be given to town centre flights when planning missions around Warrington itself, including congestion, the possibility of flying over traffic or people, and the hazard of flying around transport networks. An example of this would be that Network Rail has their own regulations regarding drones around its infrastructure which must be factored into your pre-planning.

Drone flights require planning to ensure all permissions required are applied for and secured. Our experienced pilots and admin teams work together to secure the correct permissions for each flight carried out. Whether it be an airport, sports venue, prison, hospital, National Rail exclusion zone, or any other stakeholder that requires permission to be obtained from, our backroom team can secure it.

Drone Inspections

If you don’t require a report you may just wish to inspect your site in Warrington. 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 can provide live streaming through 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.

Along with our drone survey Warrington, 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.
