Problem - Our client bought a house which needed a full refurbish, at the back of the property there was a flat roof with a skylight. Unfortunately there appeared to be a leak from somewhere, but it was difficult to establish the exact area the leak was coming from. Additionally, access to the roof would need scaffolding and to exacerbate the problem; there were steps directly outside to a lower level. The risk assessment of erecting scaffolding and the H&S proved problematic.
Solution UAV assisted in solving the problem by deploying a drone and using a zoom facility they were able to scan the whole area taking photos and videography of the complete roof.
Result This allowed the contractors visual inspection of the roof without the worry of sending someone up on scaffolding or ladders!
