What We Do

Our professional team provide both traditional building surveying services and UAV surveying services for the built environment, utilities, agriculture and construction industry utilising qualified building surveyors and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s)

Wide Horizons has the capabilities to deliver detailed visual inspections and surveys of tall or awkward structures, commercial premises and historic buildings without the need for traditional access platforms. Information is collated with the use of our team of fully qualified CAA approved drone operators and reports and deliverables compiled to meet the clients individual needs.

This method, used alongside traditional ground based surveying techniques provides our clients with a far more comprehensive survey report for their commercial roof or entire premises.

Wide Horizons is also internationally recognised after gaining ISO 9001:2008 Certification and Safe Contractor Status

How We Do It

By combining the use of our CAA approved UAV operators and the expertise of our building surveying team, each client will be safe in the knowledge that all services undertaken will be carried out in a professional and competent manner while delivering better quality information in a safer, more efficient process than previously possible.

Surveys and inspections of structures can be carried out in a fraction of the time compared to traditional methods. Using unmanned aerial platforms, the works can be carried out safely and detailed reports of all aspects of the subject premises can be captured from aspects previously unattainable from traditional methods. The outputs obtained can then be provided to the client in raw format for further analysis or detailed into a report for issue to the client ranging from a schedule of condition through to a full condition survey completed to the RICS Building Survey Standards.

The Advantages

The advantages of using unmanned air vehicles become clear once you understand their capabilities in every situation within the industry.

Here are just a few of the numerous advantages the systems have –

Ability – Utilising Unmanned Aerial Vehicles removes the need for traditional cherry pickers and scaffolding to undertake high-level surveys.

Save time – With minimal setup time and all planning and permissions obtained before the date of the survey, our team will be in the air and operational in a fraction of the time in comparison to other methods.

Realtime Footage – With our live downlink system, you will be able to see exactly what the camera sees, increasing accuracy and productivity.

Improved Safety – With the ability to reach heights and potentially hazardous areas. The use of UAV’s cannot only exceed the agility and quality of other methods but can do so without a single operative leaving ground level. As a result, the Health and Safety risks which have been present for years when inspections are carried out at height are not only reduced but in some cases removed completely.

Stronger Information – Combining both agility with highly advanced camera stabilisation, our Camera platforms will capture imagery from a much clearer perspective than other traditional means. With no limits to angle and height our camera platforms will capture images from a much clearer perspective.
