Solutions for the Built Environment: Imaging Technology on UAVs

We use cutting-edge uncrewed aerial vehicle (UAV) technology to enhance our assessments and investigations in the built environment, enabling 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.

The high-quality data provided by UAVs can be used for:

Building Envelope Services

  • Roof Assessment and Consulting
  • Leak Investigations
  • Façade, Window, and Balcony Inspections
  • Building Envelope Assessments
  • Thermographic Analyses

Pavement Engineering

  • Pavement Condition Assessments
  • Topographical Maps
  • Measurements for Design and Specifications

Structural Engineering

  • Structural Condition Assessments
  • 3D Point Clouds for Exterior Building Renderings
  • Measurements for Design and Specifications
  • Construction Management
  • Site Progress Monitoring

Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing Services

  • In-ground Steam System Assessments
  • Irrigation System Leak Assessments
  • External Utility Connection Assessments

Industrial and Renewable Energy Services

  • Solar/Photovoltaic Panel Assessments
  • Wind Turbine Assessments
  • Hydroelectric Assessments
  • Power Generation and Industrial Plant Assessments

Rimkus experts hold the top-rated UAV certificates issued by Transport Canada and/or the FAA and carry UAV industry-specific insurance. This allows our team to complete a wide variety of projects while adhering to regulations that ensure the safe operation of our UAV fleet during investigations.

Our UAV capabilities enable us to provide clients with property inspections and evaluations in a safe, effective, and economical manner. Leveraging this technology, we deliver comprehensive recommendations for addressing challenges and can offer invaluable support throughout the design, construction, and field review phases of building envelope projects.
