skyEye Aerial Drone Surveys


skyEye is RS Building Consultancy’s new Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) service providing a cost effective means of undertaking high level surveys safely and with minimal disturbance to building users.

Our fleet of drones are able to capture high definition stills and video footage (1080p and 4K UHD) for a variety of building types.

Many areas of a building or property that are traditionally considered inaccessible, can now be safely inspected and documented due to the flight and photographic capabilities of modern and evolving UAV technology.

SkyEye offers an economical and safe method of data collection for a number of varying building inspections;

  • Pre-acquisition/Lease Condition Surveys
  • Dilapidation and Schedule of Condition Inspections
  • Maintenance and Building Pathology inspections
  • Works Monitoring and Specification Compliance
  • Legal/litigation purposes
  • Boundary Disputes/Party Wall matters

Our Clients include;

  • Surveyors (building and land)
  • Architects
  • Conservation Officers/Architects
  • Structural and Civil Engineers
  • Contractors
  • Developers
  • Trusts
  • Charitable and Non-Profit Organisations
  • Local Authorities and Government Bodies
  • Land and Estate Agents
  • Estate Managers
  • Insurance companies and Loss Adjusters

The service is also of great benefit to Commercial Property Agents where aerial or high level photography or videography is required, for such purposes as promotional marketing, property particulars and the like.

The advantages afforded to our Clients include;

  • Reduced inspection costs
  • Increased availability
  • Rapid deployment
  • Health and safety matters reduced or removed

Whilst data collection is the main objective, flight safety is paramount. Our UAV Operators, who are Chartered Building Surveyors, have attained the requisite Remote Pilot Qualification-small (RPQ-s) certification recognised by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), and each flight deployment is undertaken in strict accordance with CAA legislation. Accordingly, we carry full Public Liability Insurance.

We believe that we are only the second practicing firm of Chartered Building Surveyors in the UK to receive such approval.

We are able to stream HD video and stills footage in real time directly to ground station monitors enabling Clients who wish to attend their surveys to obtain first-hand information and advice regarding the condition of their buildings, land or proposed interests.
