Drone survey and aerial inspection specialists
Ocuair ® are drone survey, aerial survey and inspection, building survey and data acquisition specialists. We work nationwide with Surveyors, Portfolio Owners, Facilities Managers and others with a professional interest in the built space.
Key to our success are our aerial drone surveys which can position a wide range of sensors to acquire data from a unique perspective.
Along with data we gather by other means, we aim to provide the right information to our clients to allow hard decisions to be made easily.
We are number 650 on the CAA register of drone operators. We have night-flying permission.
Providing and improving our service means we are constantly innovating in a fast moving technological environment. Our experience understanding, quantifying and recommending solutions to problems has been gained over 5 years. We were the first to fly a drone across the English Channel. We have led the field in using drones to understand buildings through thermal imaging and are one of the first drone operators to become a member of the RICS Tech Affiliate Programme.
We are not a broker service for drone surveys, our team are the providers, the experts, using only commercially licenced products and processes.
We take safety extremely seriously and are accredited for that approach with relevant professional bodies.
Building Defect Surveys
There are 3 aspects to these surveys:
- Physical testing
By using our range of drones and cameras and sensors, we will provide a bespoke survey of your building or asset to look for specific defects, or to provide a record enabling an assessment to be made. Our drone surveys are almost always better value, safer and faster than traditional methods, and are designed to work in conjunction and be complimentary to more conventional survey types.
Condition and monitoring
With a drone we can provide a repeatable condition survey. This could enable you to monitor projects, movement, alterations, shifts, from a different perspective including in 3D. We strive to develop ways of integrating our data to provide a real insight into buildings and assets.
When you need to understand your built space we can help. We can provide detailed and accurate data in a variety of outputs to suit your needs, including models and outputs to CAD systems.
We are able to assist surveyors in achieving the right accurately georeferenced topographical detail, combining various data capture methods in unique ways.
We provide surveyors and engineers with expert aerial and terrestrial infrared surveys to give a better insight into the true condition of buildings and structures beyond what can be identified visually and without intrusive testing, augmented by the skills of the expert analysts at IRT Surveys, with their patented analysis software.
