Queensland Drones specialises in precision contour mapping, 3D modelling, progress photography and marketing photography for construction sites and development sites.

We can provide baseline aerial contour mapping of your greenfield construction and development sites so you can track material being removed from the site and estimate the amount of material still to be removed. These contour maps, resolved to 0.25 or 0.5m intervals at a resolution of 10-15cm, can also be used to inform the site design process and ensure compliance with government and council flood mitigation requirements.

0.25m contour map with a vertical/horizontal precision of <15cm created can be delivered as Google Earth KMZ files, PDF and DWG for import into your CAD software.

Queensland Drones can provide high-definition aerial photography to simulate the dramatic panoramic views that will be captured by a new office or residential tower development. We can tailor these panoramic views to specific directions and vistas, as well as capturing identical views at each level of a building. Selling apartments off the plan was never easier than this.

Panoramic images are a great way to market stunning views from proposed tower developments

Queensland Drones can provide aerial progress photography of large commercial and industrial development sites over time, tracking the release of various development stages and keeping investors informed in ways that were never possible until now.

There are many other ways we can deploy unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) productively to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of building, construction and development. The high definition video and still photos we achieve using our 20MP DJI Phantom 4 Professional UAV can be used to assess the condition of walls and windows in multi-story buildings, or to inspect roof areas of even very tall buildings without the need for the expense of ladders, scaffolding, cranes or motorised lifts.

High definition aerial photography provides stunning detail for building inspections

Aerial asset inspections for a building roof, walls, windows or other external structures using a UAV is more cost-effective and safer than traditional building inspection methods and can also produce much more timely results. The 4K video and 12 MP still images produced by our UAV cameras are better than the naked eye at detecting potential issues.

High-definition 20MP aerial photographs provide amazing detail while maintaining strong risk management practices.

Privacy of residents in a building or high-rise structure is a serious concern and we always require that tenants and strata title owners be given written notice that such inspections are occurring, including the time and date, so they can take appropriate precautions to protect their privacy during the inspection.

UAV building inspections are particularly useful when preparing evidence for insurance claims following a storm, cyclone or other major disaster. We can gather informative video and imagery very quickly, within days of the event, allowing your claim to proceed faster than would otherwise be possible. Even if your building is unreachable due to flooding or other obstacles, a UAV can often get in and provide detailed information about how the building has been impacted.
