Equans North East Lincolnshire have added Drone Surveying to their extensive list of commercially-available services.
With a number of CAA approved Level 4 Certified GVC (General Visual Line of Sight) drone pilots working within the Equans offices in North East Lincolnshire, the company is now able to use drone capabilities to quickly, safely and cost-effectively survey assets for damage, defects and heat loss without the need to bring in scaffolding.
It will make reactive and remedial building maintenance much more efficient, and is offering this efficiency to clients, including to North East Lincolnshire Council as part of its programme of building maintenance.
In adopting this technology, Equans have been able to make their team’s working environment safer too, with more hazardous aspects of surveying works, such as working at heights, no longer a necessity.
Drone technology will allow for more challenging environments that would typically be unsafe or difficult to reach with traditional methods to be safely surveyed before action is taken. This is particularly prudent in instances where a property has been damaged by an external force, such as flood or fire.
Stephanie Ledgerwood, Head of Professional Services at Equans North East Lincolnshire said: “Having this skill and certification within the Equans North East Lincolnshire team will allow the contract to offer more efficient services to assist with reactive and remedial maintenance of North East Lincolnshire Council’s vast portfolio of buildings, and is commercially available to private clients too.
“Our focus is always on delivering projects in a manner that not only provides great results, but also minimises risk to the workforce. We have been eager to embrace drone technology as a better way of delivering one of our services; providing the same insights and data to make decisions, but improving the working environment for those undertaking the work.”
