Drone Surveys & Inspection Wrexham

Wrexham Drone Airspace Overview
Wrexham Drone Airspace Up Close


Wrexham is the largest town in North Wales, with a population of approximately 65,000. Located 13 miles southwest of Chester, 70 miles east of Anglesey, between the Welsh mountains and the Dee Valley.

The only major airspace restriction around the area is at Hawarden to the north towards Chester, with areas of increased risk to the south of Wrexham at the Ultralight site at Chirk and the Llantisilio Glider Site at Llandegla.
The usual considerations should be given to town centre flights when planning missions around Wrexham itself, including congestion, the possibility of over-flying traffic or people, and the hazard of flying around transport networks.

An example of this would be that Network Rail have their own regulations regarding drones around their infrastructure which must be factored into your pre-planning.

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 Wrexham

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 Wrexham, 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 Wrexham and the wider North Wales 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.

Drone Inspections Wrexham

If you don’t require a report you may just wish to inspect your site in Wrexham. Our pilots can work with you or your surveyors to inspect the whole building or focus on 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 visit 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 Wrexham

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.
