Survey by The Sea

This month sees our new survey service really take off! (pun intended!) Working with Mike Lilford of we spent a whole day filming at Paragon Court in Margate. Situated right on the sea front we were surveying the whole exterior of the building in minute detail to allow Mike to produce an in-depth survey of the condition of the building. So without the need for ladders, scaffolding or a cherry picker and with no minimum disruption to residents (who had of course all been informed they might see a drone from their windows) the whole job was carried out, in perfect sunny and windless weather it must be said, in 6 hours. Job done, numerous photos taken and Mike was able to monitor and instruct the pilot (Damian!) from a screen at ground level. See the pics and film here! Next development in our fast moving surveying strategy is to conduct a live-streaming survey and for Mike to monitor and still be able to instruct the pilot from his office thereby reducing his carbon footprint to zero and be more time and cost-effective. It’s a win-win situation!
