As the use of drones within construction and its associated industries increases, it is important to get the right drone operator on board with your projects.  Someone who understands the industry.  A construction professional.  And that's where Commercial Drone Photography comes in.  Company founder and chief pilot, Alan Lucas, has over 30 years design experience within the insulated roofing and cladding industry, having produced the working drawings for some very prestigious projects ranging from the Birmingham NEC to the Old Bailey and the RAC Headquarters to Battersea Dogs' Home.  The latter was even used as the "And finally" spot on ITV's News at Ten.

Alan has not come from a hobbyist background.  As a full member of the Institute of Roofing, he is a well qualified construction professional, with a great deal of experience.  He is a qualified commercial energy assessor, so can produce design stage SBEM calculations for your commercial and industrial projects, to ensure that the design meets the requirements of Part L2A of the Building Regulations.  This can then be followed by an on-construction Energy Performance Certificate.  After that, he can deliver a thermal building survey, as he is a fully qualified thermographer.  He is also a trained professional photographer.  As a consequence, we can offer a range of in-house services that no other drone operations company can offer.  Take a look:

  • 3D mapping services for project feasibility studies
  • SBEM calculations to ensure compliance with Part L2A of the Building Regulations
  • CAD design services
  • Level 2 BIM services - Revit and Tekla (Alan is qualified to BIM Level 2)
  • Site inspections by drone or on foot
  • Cladding inspections, design and advice
  • Progress monitoring by drone - saving you time and money
  • On-construction EPC's
  • Post-construction thermographic building surveys - useful for identifying areas of heat loss and for additional  BREEAM Ecopoints
  • Promotional stills and video footage

We are the only drone services supplier that can offer all of the above without having to sub-contract the work out. 

We can do it all. 

It's this that makes us your one-stop-drone-shop.
