We recently required a measured building survey of a dome-shaped structure, and Sky Scan Surveys were absolutely brilliant. Their use of cutting-edge drone equipment effectively captured the intricate measurements of the dome. This was a massive advantage over traditional methods or laser scanners, which wouldn't have been effective in capturing the complex curves. Sky Scan Surveys didn't just stop at capturing the data. They also delivered the final model in a STEP format, unlike some 3D model formats that only store basic surface information. STEP files encompass the entire model's data, including all the precise details and features, ensuring maximum accuracy when transferring the model between different software programs. In a nutshell, Sky Scan Surveys were hugely impressive. Their innovative use of drones and their commitment to detail with the STEP file format make them the perfect choice for anyone needing surveys of complex structures.

I approached Sky Scan Surveys to enquire if they could mentor my son for his forthcoming work experience Apprenticeship placement . Paul kindly accepted him and talked us through exactly what the job Advanced Drone surveying entails and what he will be learning and he supported this with giving us further information an research to do that will broaden his horizons before he embarks on the course .Thank you

The company had been recommended by a former colleague working for MACE. He told me how much he was able to rely on the company's delivered product to calculate the scale and pre-plan their new project's ground works and price it accordingly. Boy oh boy, was he right? Our project required precise topography and 3D modelling of existing protected structures and also some amazing drone video footage of the natural features the finished project will use in our surrounding to attract our target clientele. The delivery was fast, professional, and very reasonably priced. Impressive new technology. I will surely recommend to anyone who need an efficient, reliable, and accurate solution in construction. I am an Urban Planning engineer/Civil Engineer

We recently had Sky Scan Surveys and Paul come to our construction site to create a 3D model/digital twin. We are building multi-story apartments, office buildings, and a commercial center, on Manchester City Center and the model has been incredibly helpful. Paul was very professional and easy to work with. He took the time to understand our needs and explain the process to us. He was also very flexible and accommodating, and he worked around our schedule. The model that Paul created is incredibly detailed and accurate. It allows us to see the entire construction site from a bird's eye view, and we can zoom in to see individual details. The model has been helpful in a number of ways. We highly recommend Sky Scan Surveys and Paul to anyone who is considering having a 3D model/digital twin created of their construction site.

Sky Scan Surveys provided an exceptional service, under the expert guidance of Paul. Sky Scan Surveys recently conducted a comprehensive survey using their state-of-the-art drone and camera. Beyond simply incorporating local coordinates and using ground control points, they uncovered a potential problem early. This discovery was essential for our planning process. This precision is an absolute game-changer. I wholeheartedly endorse them and the work they do, and I eagerly anticipate future collaborations.

Drone surveying

Drone surveying is a quick and cost-effective alternative to traditional ground-based methods. Specialised drones are used to capture and collect geospatial data from areas that are difficult to reach. This flexible surveying method performs well even in challenging conditions, such as low light and dense vegetation.

Drone survey data is of high quality and available in real time, eliminating the need for multiple site visits. This technology seamlessly integrates with other surveying tools, providing a complete and detailed picture of the area being surveyed.

What problems can drone surveys solve?

  • Advanced integration with other technologies
  • Real-time communication and data sharing
  • Ability to map large areas quickly
  • Different sizes of drones to fit any project scale

What are the benefits of a drone survey?

  • Reaching difficult or dangerous locations
  • Reducing health and safety risks
  • Cutting traffic management costs
  • Improving efficiency
  • Inspecting ageing infrastructure

How accurate is drone survey data?

High-quality drone surveys from Sky Scan Surveys can achieve accuracies of around +/- 20mm. 

The Key Benefits of Drones for Topographical Surveys and Inspections

Faster Data collection

Drones swiftly collect accurate, geo-tagged data, utilising advanced photogrammetry and LiDAR for streamlined processing and standardised outputs just as Point Clouds, DWG, CAD, Orthomosaics, 3D Models and more

Cost Efficiency

Drone Surveying reduces the costs associated with traditional surveying methods, such as manual measurements, ground teams, drone Land surveys require fewer resources and can cover large areas quickly

High Precision and Accuracy

Advanced drone technology, including RTK, LiDAR, Ground Targets and High-Resolution cameras, ensures precise data collection. This accuracy is crucial for detailed mapping, measurements, and analysis in surveying projects. Accuracy from 15mm - 50mm depending on method
