The Haven at St Katherines Docks

Drone Roof Survey at St Katherines Docks.

The drone was used due to no direct access to the roof. The extremely central and busy location also meant a safe and time efficient method was required to record all necessary data. There was no requirement for scaffolding or other access equipment. Using the drone ensured close inspection of the various elements of the roof and upper elevations.

Challenges for the drone team included; management of the operation area as members of the public were present throughout the duration of the survey; keeping VLOS(visual line of sight), this required a lot of movement and communication between ground crew and the remote pilot; natural hazards (trees and birds) surrounding the building requiring careful planning and skilled flying of the drone around the property. Due to the property being located within a marina, liaising with onsite security was key for us to operate in a safe manner with all parties being involved.
