Drones can navigate complex structures, providing comprehensive coverage of the entire building exterior, including difficult-to-reach areas that might be inaccessible or time-consuming to inspect using scaffolding or rope access.
Drones capture high-resolution imagery and videos, offering inspectors a close-up view of the building’s surface and potential issues. This level of detail might be challenging to achieve with the naked eye from scaffolding or rope access.
Deploying drones for inspections is quicker than setting up scaffolding or rope access systems, saving valuable time and allowing inspections to commence promptly.
Drones can easily navigate around architectural intricacies, tower blocks, and various building designs. This agility enables them to capture data from multiple angles and perspectives that might be hard to achieve using traditional methods.
Drones follow predefined flight paths, ensuring consistent data collection without variations caused by human error that can occur with different inspectors using scaffolding or rope access.
By eliminating the need for human inspectors to scale heights using scaffolding or rope, drones significantly reduce the risk of accidents, falls, and injuries associated with working at heights.
Drone-captured data can be analysed in real-time, enabling immediate identification of issues and allowing inspectors to adjust their approach during the inspection process itself.
While setting up scaffolding and rope access can be expensive and time-consuming, using drones offers cost savings in terms of equipment, labour, and operational expenses.
Drones can conduct inspections without causing disruption to building occupants or the surrounding environment, which is especially valuable in residential or busy urban areas.
Drones can capture data during different inspection cycles, allowing for easy comparison over time to monitor the evolution of building conditions, which might be challenging using traditional methods.
