About Us


   Founded in 2016 by Jim Morris, a leading UK drone surveying expert, Drone Surveying works with MANY of the UK’s largest house builders, showing new ways and perspectives into effective site management.

By using the latest high specification drones and software techniques, DRONE SURVEYING creates a data set of high-quality accurate imagery that enables our clients to analyse precise measurements, make volumetric calculations and view recordings of your site enhancing the ability to make comparisons of data from subsequent surveys.  

With extensive health and safety costs associated with construction site operations, the use of UAVs significantly enhances on-site safety. 

•  Our team of drone pilots are fully qualified to operate commercially on your construction sites. 

•  Our CAA GVC Commercial Permissions have been in use for nearly a decade with a clean safety record.

•  Full insurances are in place: Employers’ Public liability and full indemnity insurance.

•  A full set of RAMS will be provided prior to each agreed job.

•  We have supported construction companies in writing and adopting their own drone policy, now in use across their whole organisation.

•  As an established UAV operator, we consult on a regular basis with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on safety issues affecting our industry, ensuring we are up to speed and adhering to the latest legislation, guidance and best practice.
