drone surveys of construction site FAST, SAFE, EFFECTIVE Whether you call them drone surveys, aerial surveys, UAS surveys, or UAV surveys; we know them to be the quickest, safest, and most cost-efficient way to survey at height.

Drone surveys to eliminate at height work

Drone Surveys

Drone surveys are now established as a valuable approach to transmission tower and powerline surveying. By eliminating manual ‘at-height’ working, they greatly reduce risk and improve safety outcomes.

Drones can be deployed rapidly and allow asset managers to interrogate defects using ultra high definition 4k imaging. Our drones frequently provide fresh data on previously difficult to see areas; helping our customers to make quicker, assured decisions.


A LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) drone survey creates exceptionally detailed digital models of landscape, vegetation, buildings and other assets. This makes it a great process for mapping and surveying landscape, quarries, stockpiles, roads and infrastructure, forestry, floods and complex structures such as powerlines.

LiDAR can be carried out using ground-based equipment as well as drones. Contact us for more details.

Cross-sector benefits

For most sectors, drone surveys are quicker, more cost-effective, and safer than traditional manual surveys.

We specialise in construction surveys for buildings and rooftops and our experts can offer advice as well as images and information to be passed on to the structural engineer for sign off. We also provide drone surveys for other commercial applications including surveying land for property development and GIS mapping for agriculture. Find out more.

So long to scaffolding

Our drones can capture high definition video footage which provide a view from above without the cost of hiring a plane or helicopter. Drone surveys are also more affordable, quicker and pose fewer health and safety risks than setting up scaffolding and access platforms.

Fleet fantastic

Sky Revolutions operates a fleet of drones that enable us to meet all aerial surveying needs. Our market-leading fleet includes Phantoms (plus the latest 4 RTK), DJI Mavic Pro M200 and M300, and an eBee Plus long-distance mapping drone.

All our drones are capable of providing detailed data and images – down to millimetre accuracy, and valuable structural analysis that helps users detect and prevent further damage to infrastructure. Take a look at our drone survey case studies pages for examples of our work. For more information, a no obligation quote, or to book a drone survey, please contact us.
