UAV Technology for the Built Environment


Using the latest Uncrewed Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology to enhance our assessments and investigations of the built environment allows us to provide unique visual and digital information with greater efficiency. This facilitates safer investigations of previously hard-to-reach areas that would not otherwise be easily accessed or evaluated.
