Drones can deliver measurable value through cost reduction. You can choose whether to maximise margins, create greater delivery efficiencies or simply create a more competitive pricing offer for your customer. This case study demonstrates a real example of significant cost savings (£10,000) Aspection have delivered for one customer

Complex City Centre Roof Structure

The Challenge

A large national organisation which provides management services for residential developments needed to undertake a roof inspection of a prestige city centre apartment building. The building presented significant and costly access challenges along with the necessity for traffic control measures for traditional access measures such as scaffolding or platform elevation units

The Solution

Following an initial site survey, risk assessment and review of airspace classifications, Aspection flew for an hour taking photographs of the entire roof space, including spires, lean-to’s and flat roofing. The area of operation was established within a cordoned area in the central courtyard  of the apartment block.

The Value

Quotations for other access measures ranged from £5k up to in excess of £10k. All such other measures would also have necessitated liaison with the Local Authority for traffic control measures within a busy city centre and would have caused some disruption to residents and possible privacy issues.

Value Delivered

The roof space was photographed in high resolution 4k images so details could be examined. As there was no necessity to liaise with the Local Authority nor implement traffic control measures, work could start almost immediately and related costs were negated. The managing agent identified a small area of roof space that required some scaffolding for repair work and saved in the region of £10k, a huge 96% saving on inspection costs.
