listening and understanding what the client requirements are is so important, we always encourage the surveyors, management or home owners to be on site whenever we drone inspect their sites.
Understanding Customers Needs
Every site is different, even though they may look the same we still have to understand what the surveyor is looking for and what type of information they require. Here, there was an issue with a leak above the main lift shaft of the building. We flew the drone over the lift plant in order to try and ascertain where the water may be entering. In this case it wasn't so obvious and we captured as much detail as we could .
Whilst on site we gave the surveyor, Jack as much data as we could capturing all the data, in stills shots and video of the whole roof space, this included checking the gutters and drainage situation, how are the roof material holding out, are there any other signs of corrosion that may need maintenance. Anything we can find is useful for the surveyors to include in their reports back to their clients. This shows due diligence and makes everyone aware of potential problems that may arise.
Drones are cost-effective when compared to other inspection methods such as scaffolding or cherry pickers. They require fewer personnel than traditional inspection teams which means less time spent on site and consequently lower costs for clients.
