DJM Aerial Solutions enlisted for retail building survey operation

DJM Aerial Solutions, a Middlesbrough-based commercial drone service provider, has deployed a UAV to complete a building survey task on behalf of a local chartered surveyor.

The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) firm was instructed to carry out a photographic condition survey, which included an in-depth roof survey and photographic condition report on any defective issues, of a building that is now used as a retail outlet for high street fashion store as well as to exhibit a fine jewellery display.

A spokesperson from DJM Aerial Solutions said: “With all of their capabilities UAV use is fast becoming a disruptive innovation to all sub-industries including construction and survey. The ground they can cover in relation to standard methods not only provides the same high-quality data but also reduces the risk of any injury to personnel plus the colossal reduction in costings.

“This is certainly the case when carrying out building survey or a roof survey especially on difficult to navigate pitched areas and gable ends, even external elevations and sills that would normally need a scaffold or an access platform to inspect as was the case on this retail outlet and when working with a chartered surveyor the final information needs to be correct.”

DJM Aerial Solutions carried out the survey on Sunday morning before any of the shops had opened for business.
