Using drones is safer and a more cost effective solution when it comes to providing accurate information on any project that involves working at height, hard to reach areas or a quick turnaround of 3D data capture.

A Drone Survey allows the capture of Imagery & 3D Data. From video roof reports to combining 3D Drone Survey data with 3D Laser Scanner data, Benchmark Surveys carries out a variety of work involving the use of Drones.

A Drone Survey can also be used in combination with traditional land surveying techniques. Our surveyors will pick up all survey detail with total stations & GPS keeping a very high surveying accuracy, and then can capture larger areas of spot levels with the drone if the land is suitable. This allows a highly accurate survey but reduces time considerably on larger sites. 


Improved Safety and Compliance

Capture more accurate measurements in less time, Reduce the time employees and contractors spend on site.

Whole site mapping: 


Map entire sites so you have a visual representation of the site at a given time.

More accurate than traditional surveying methods

In some cases, this information is even more accurate because drone-generated point clouds gather millions of points compared to the hundreds gathered in a ground-based survey.



No need for expensive cranes, scaffolding rigs & working at height permits

Providing detailed information with images and video for immediate assessment rather than requiring the use of expensive and time-consuming scaffolding.

Real-time live feed from UAV

You can watch the live video feed transmitted to our Pilots receiver safely from the ground.

High Quality Photographic Capture

The flight can be recorded at Ultra HD 4K (4 x HD Quality) with the ability to take 4K stills of particular areas if needed. This allows us to zoom into the photos/footage great amounts and not lose image quality.

3D Models

Create geo-referenced 3D models which can enable investigation into areas by navigating around the scanned building, don't be restrained by the singular angles of photographs or videos.

Geo-located Point Clouds

Using Ground Control Points in conjunction with our Trimble R10 GPS system enables correctly geo-referenced projects for streamlining further use of the captured Point Cloud.

3D Models

Using the drone technology you can create geo-referenced 3D models which can let you investigate areas by navigating around the scanned building, don't be restrained by the singular angles of photographs or videos.




Virtual design and construction: 

Export drone-generated point clouds into 3D design software for powerful insights. Ensure site progress is in step with original design plans.

Improved communication: 

Share maps and models with internal and external stakeholders for streamlined communications. Keep everyone in the office upto date and informed — even if you’re still on site.

2D Aerial Site progression: 

Allows client to see real-time surveyed progression of the site against the 2D Plans quickly and safely.
