As part of Zenith’s expanding portfolio of services, we are pleased to provide our clients with our PfCO CAA licensed UAV Inspection and Surveying capability.
For many years, Zenith has been a market leader in the inspection of flare stacks, industrial chimneys, natural draft cooling towers, buildings and other structures. The addition of our UAV service will provide a unique added value for our clients as our inspections are managed and controlled by our Structural Engineers.
We are able to generate 2D and 3D models from captured survey information and existing drawings. We can accurately determine revised capacities and assess the life extensions of existing structures and structural elements. Decay, loss of section, material properties, geometry and change of use are a number of variables that can affect the performance and life span of any building or structure. This can all be modelled to represent a snapshot in time and assist with determining the structural integrity of existing assets.
A UAV inspection allows for a visual examination of structures providing photographic and video records. Following the survey, a comprehensive report is compiled by our dedicated team of Structural Engineers. UAV inspections allow engineers to identify the general condition of structures thereby permitting a more focused hands on survey, if required.
