Drone Services

Drones are very versatile pieces of equipment that can be used for a wide variety of applications from simple imagery to full surveys. They can also make it safer, faster, and more efficient to gather meaningful data while reducing liability and risk.

Blue Tower offer a bespoke package for your business so why not give us a call today to find out how we can help you and your business.

Blue Tower Services recently provided an excellent Roof Survey for us which, in addition to high quality imagery, also included Surface Area, Pitch, Slope and Perimeter measurements as an added bonus.

Arranging an aerial inspection by drone is a more cost-effective and hassle-free way than dealing with all the variables required for a manned inspection, like increased health and safety legislation and costly equipment hire like scaffolding and cherry pickers.

Drones can quickly and easily manoeuvre around sites that are difficult or even dangerous for a person to access.  They can deliver results in a fraction of the time and still provide all the data you need and inspection data collected by drone has a 99.4% accuracy rate.

Regular inspections can be scheduled and carried out, to provide you with information for maintenance purposes.

Other benefits

  • reduced costs
  • faster results
  • reduced dangerous access issues for workers
  • reduced disruption for the business owner
  • more detailed and useful data

We know that companies need Topographical Surveys done quickly and efficiently to avoid delays and to help their project run smoothly. Our simple process ensures everything is hassle free and straight forward and quite often, some of our clients have their own specification that they want us to use as the basis for the survey and in these instances, we are happy to take instruction on your requirements.

Using a drone allows us in a relatively short period of time to rapidly capture large areas of data for inaccessible or hard to reach locations by combining high resolution photographs with GPS location information to provide you with a reliable and accurate information.

The use of the drone is a far faster and safer means for inspecting high level areas or land where it may not be safe to walk, it also removes the need for any high-level access equipment which can be costly, slow to operate, and has a limited operational reach.

Drone survey methods are therefore, safer and more cost-effective as there is no need for human access to the area being surveyed.

The ease, simplicity, and geometric accuracy of 3D models produced by drone images gives many varied applications across a variety of industries.

Drones can scan large, often hard to access buildings, construction sites, or large areas of land thanks to a process called photogrammetry.

The ease, simplicity, and geometric accuracy of 3D models produced by drone images gives them numerous applications across a variety of industries.

Companies that can benefit from Drone footage

Construction industry can now monitor the progress of a construction site for regular updates, and easily inspect different areas of the site too. The accuracy of the 3D models also means they can be used to calculate distance, area, and volume measurements where required.

Land surveying has become easier by obtaining an up-to-date view of a landscape allowing creation of detailed bare earth models, digital surface models, and true orthomosaics along with generating 3D models of the terrain in question.

Building inspection companies can get a close look at previously unseen angles of properties and equipment more safely and more efficiently.

Architects and Engineering firms can use 3D models to create realistic and detailed context models for their buildings and development projects. Architects use these context models to present how their finished project will look.

Higher resolution images will provide better map reconstruction and can be really useful when photographing grass fields, sand, forests or similar homogeneous patterns.

Benefits of High Resolution images

  • More accurate distance measurements
  • More accurate stockpile volume calculations
  • More accurate population or plant counting
