Gloucester Industrial Estate roof surveys

Comprehensive inspection of the roofs of all units within two commercial-industrial estates located in Gloucester, West England

EK Specialist Surveys recently completed a comprehensive inspection of the roofs of all units within two commercial-industrial estates located in Gloucester, West England.

Given the expansive nature of the industrial estates, EK Specialist Surveys deployed their drone to efficiently and safely capture a full photographic record of conditions of the roof. The drone survey included close examination of various elements of the roofs and significantly streamlined the inspection process by eliminating the need for conventional methods such as scaffolding or cherry pickers..

Consequently the client benefited from substantial time and cost savings.

The cost of traditional inspection methods would have ranged between £6000-£10000. By utilising EK Digitals drone survey services the cost of inspection was less than £2000.

The drone team encountered several challenges throughout the project including;

  • Management and control of operational areas.
  • Adherence to visual line-of-sight regulations (VLOS).
  • Notification of neighboring properties regarding our operations.
  • Effectively navigating potential natural hazards such as seagulls during nesting season.
