Daniells Harrison offer UAV (drone) surveys alongside our existing surveying services.

We are one of the few RICS Chartered Surveyors in the South of England to hold the Civil Aviation Authority permission allowing us to fly and use drones for commercial purposes.

Aerial surveys are a cheaper and more efficient way of inspecting buildings that were previously only accessible by expensive lift platforms and can be used to complement many of our services including:

  • commercial and residential valuations
  • building surveying
  • dilapidations
  • building defects
  • insurance reinstatement
  • planning applications

Aerial surveys carried out by the experts

You can get an aerial “survey” carried out by non-surveyors but you still need to employ the services of a RICS surveyor to analyse and report on the footage or images. Choosing Daniells Harrison Chartered Surveyors to carry out your aerial survey will give you the complete package and, because qualified RICS surveyors are piloting the drone (officially termed a UAV – unmanned aerial vehicle), we know exactly what to look for and where issues are likely to arise.

The drone gives us the opportunity to easily survey previously inaccessible parts of buildings, such as roofs and higher structural details.  The high definition quality of the images and video enables us to analyse properties in detail and provide video and photographic evidence.

We are employing cutting edge technology using a Phantom 4 UAV with a 4k camera giving high resolution images and video.

We are able to offer aerial drone surveys in many locations across the South of England including: Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Sussex, Dorset and Wiltshire.

Our piloted UAV service is also available to capture video and high-quality images of property and land for marketing or publicity purposes.

For more information or to book an aerial drone survey, please contact Chris Daniells or Richard Huffer at our Fareham office.
