Site Surveying

Construction site aerial photography can show every stage of a development from planning, foundations, through to completion. There is no better way of getting an overview progression of a construction site that by using aerial pictures. Elite UAV pilots are all CAA approved and have over 20 years construction experience. We work with our construction clients to really understand their requirements and how they wish to use the aerial photography along with the latest software to view the models.

Different types of surveys including:

Topographical & Mapping Surveys

Visualisations & Modelling for Planning

Property Inspections

Condition Surveys

Site Visualisations

Volumes and Measurements

Flying drones (UAV’s) is a very cost effective way of recording progress and issues on a construction site, all the way through from site acquisitions to final completed build.
Elite UAVs Construction site aerial service allows it clients to view the whole project on a cloud based system which can be viewed at any time to see the progress on site taking place along with other features such as adding CAD drawing to the Orthomosaic images so that the site can be compared to the original site drawing’s to keep the project to budget. Monthly progress photographs are being used to produce full 2D and 3D site images that can be used for accurate measurement and use in conjunction with traditional quantity surveying methods forecasting costs savings of £3.5bn across the construction and manufacturing sectors by 2030 resulting in increased productivity of 3.1% and up to 15% saved on end profits.
