Building Maintenance Planning  

Drones can be utilized as an safe and quickly deployable solution for identifying and locating  Possible and known building defects without the need for maintenance technician's to have to access Potentially hazardous areas of buildings such as roof areas and inaccessible high level facades to diagnose defects. 

Remove the working at Hight risks  


Removing the following required actions for working at height. 


  • Eliminates  the requirement for roof and working at height permits.    

  • Removes the need for specialist working at height trained maintenance technicians to carry out medial building defects identification such as small leaks and pooling water due to blocked guttering allowing task focused operations to be carried out.   

  • Removes the risk  of dropped  objects from height such as tools and equipment used by building maintenance technicians.

Thermal imagining surveys 

Drones equipped with thermal imaging equipment can be utilized for a number of tasks such as detecting leaks and areas of damp on roof, Inefficient Areas of thermal energy loss  on building roofs and vertical facades and electrical equipment performance  surveys. 

  • Identification of areas of pooling water and damp affected building material's under roof membranes such as asphalt roofing and sarnafil. 

  •  Identification of areas of thermal loss through poor insulation of buildings leading to poor energy efficiency and increased energy costs. 


  • Identification of overheating electrical and process equipment that gives early warning to equipment Failure.
