Using state-of-the-art aircraft and high-resolution cameras, Plowman Craven’s highly-trained pilots are fully certified by the Civil Aviation Authority to operate in even the most congested areas, capturing highly-accurate geospatial survey data and high-resolution imagery from even the most challenging or inaccessible location - in a fraction of the time taken by traditional survey methods.
Our UAV division captures highly-accurate geospatial survey data and high-resolution imagery.
Working closely with our Property Development and Property Management teams, our UAV division captures highly-accurate geospatial survey data and high-resolution imagery from even the most challenging or inaccessible locations - in a fraction of the time taken by traditional survey methods.
Enhanced UAV data is seamlessly integrated into existing workflows throughout the project lifecycle, with services ranging from condition surveys, building elevations and topographical surveys to 3D Building Information Modelling (BIM), Health & Safety assessments and environmental assessments.
Recent UAV survey projects have included everything from listed buildings and Central London offices to historic Universities and residential housing estates, with work being carried out at Smithfield Poultry Market, Pembroke College Cambridge, Earls Court, Royal Brompton Hospital and even Tottenham Hotspur’s stadium roof… to name but a few.
As one of the few companies in the UK to have Operational Safety Case (OSC) approval from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), we are authorised to use drones in even the most congested areas, including Central London. Having submitted a 280-page operating manual to the CAA, we are permitted to overfly people and property at a height of 25m, as well as taking off and landing from this distance. The basic CAA permission is 50m, which means we are able to capture much higher quality data.
Plowman Craven is continuing to push boundaries through a dedicated UAV division that uses the latest drone technology to provide high-accuracy surveying and inspection services to the property, rail and infrastructure markets.
