Taking savings to new heights with Drone Surveying

In today’s rapidly evolving construction industry, staying ahead of the curve requires innovative solutions that streamline processes, enhance accuracy, and drive cost savings.

Drone Surveying stands at the forefront of this movement, leveraging cutting-edge drone surveying technology to revolutionise the way construction projects are planned, executed, and managed.

With our advanced aerial surveying capabilities, we offer a transformative approach that empowers construction teams to make informed decisions, mitigate risks, and achieve unprecedented levels of efficiency and precision.

Join us as we explore how Drone Surveying’s services are taking savings to new heights and reshaping the future of construction management.

Drone surveys create a real-time model of an entire build site allowing the analysis of data through an online portal to create accurate and detailed 3D models of the construction site. This is used for site inspection, progress tracking, and topographical mapping. We create a unique and accurate 3D earthworks site model which is overlayed into the drone data to support the cut-and-fill strategy, avoiding potentially costly errors or oversights on the build.

Drone Surveying use advanced technology drones to capture over 100 million points of data from different angles and heights to produce a 3D as-built model of sites.

Currently working alongside 17 major housebuilders and flying over in excess of 650 sites in the last year, Drone Surveying provide a cost-effective package of services to development teams which guarantees significant cost savings throughout the various stages of the build.

One Drone Surveying customer reported savings of £180,000 on a single project after commissioning just two of our surveys.​

Launched in 2016, Drone Surveying are the lead provider of aerial surveys to the housing sector, delivering cost-saving advantages and logistics solutions through the innovative use of drone technology. These savings arise from not only the efficient, accurate and streamlined processes that drones offer throughout various stages of construction projects, but also by allowing housebuilders to take a proactive approach to managing their development.

In the majority of surveys, Drone Surveying identify construction errors, from fence boundaries to major infrastructure being incorrectly installed.

With ever-decreasing budgets, housebuilders are constantly tasked with cutting unnecessary costs resulting from potential discrepancies with civils teams. Data produced from regular drone surveys allows Technical, Commercial and Construction teams to take complete ownership of their development, questioning volumetrics of earth movements, checking accuracy in the positioning of fence boundaries and driveways thus eliminating the potential for future discrepancies with Land Registry, Council Planning teams or customer litigation. 

A large construction error was identified when a road was installed incorrectly which led to a 2m discrepancy when the as-built was compared to the design.

Being able to make real-time checks when responding to customer queries is paramount; the ability to clarify the report of a plot being flooded or a set of boundary lines that have been installed incorrectly by accessing the portal live undoubtedly add to a positive customer care experience.
