Harnessing drone technology to inform planning and maintenance

Drone technology, cameras and data processing have come a long way over the last few years and are now a creditable alternative to the traditional ways of assessing assets by building surveyors or facilities management firms. RICS recently published a report on this subject for its members highlighting some of the benefits. The technology can be used to gather digital asset data for pre-acquisition surveys, due diligence surveys, planned maintenance programmes, dilapidation surveys or schedule of conditions. The digital data provides deeper data insights, better collaboration on projects, improves data deliverables to clients while reducing costs and risks. Drone technology can be used for different types of asset/portfolio surveys, eg residential, commercial or industrial roof, facade or building inspections.
