INSPECTION

SAFE & EFFICIENT INSPECTIONS

Drones are a powerful resource for inspections. They reduce the need for expensive boom lifts, swing stages, and scaffolding. Drones can access hard to reach locations, specifically target areas of concern, and eliminate human error.

CASE STUDY: RGB

Traditional Methods vs Drone Methods

  1. Traditional: Erect sophisticated scaffold and swing stages for multi-week inspection

  2. Drone: Drone serves as preliminary means of inspection. Cutting out several weeks of traditional inspection.

 

Benefits

Drone vs Traditional methods:

  1. Speed: Inspection timeline with drone - 3 days vs multi-week.

  2. Cost: Using drone saved owner ~$80K in scaffolding rental and inspection man hours.

  3. Worker Safety: Drone replaced boots on a scaffold.

  4. Public Safety: Owners can make real-time actionable public safety decisions.

  5. Accessible: Clean data that can be easily stored and accessed for future use.

CASE STUDY: THERMAL

Traditional Methods vs Drone Methods

  1. Traditional (Roof): Core cuts executed on the roof

  2. Drone (Roof): Thermal camera detects water penetration on roof

  3. Traditional (Windows/Facade): Swing stages for 1-2 week inspection.

  4. Drone (Windows/Facade): Drone served as preliminary means of inspection. Cutting out several days of traditional inspection.

 

Benefits

Drone vs Traditional methods:

  1. Speed: Inspection timeline with drone - 1 days vs multi-week.

  2. Cost: Saved owner ~$20K in swing stage and inspection hours.

  3. Worker Safety: Drone replaced boots on a scaffold.

  4. Accessible: Clean data that can be easily stored and accessed for future use.

  5. Thermal sees what the naked eye can’t.

TESTIMONIAL

Thermal roof inspections get the job done.

We recently completed a large roofing project in our home city of Topeka, KS. The project went very well overall but we kept having a problem with one leak every so often when we would get long-lasting rains.

 

Our company spent multiple trips back to the job doing water tests and searching high and low for this leak but we could not find it.

 

I finally decided to contact Andrew and Heartland Drone Company to help us with our leak. Andrew and his team went to work right away and did a thermal scan for us on our project.

 

After a very in-depth presentation, they pinpointed what the issue was and we were able to get it fixed the next day! Heartland Drone Company was a huge help to us and I would love to work with them again in the future.

Aerial insights captured in real-time. Click to view a 360 Panorama.

Using precision GPS, the drone captures high-resolution images and stitches them together. The result - a very detailed 360-degree panorama that can be shared with key stakeholders in minutes using cloud technology.

3D POINT CLOUD

A Point Cloud is a 3D visualization made up of thousands or even millions of georeferenced points. 

 

Point clouds provide high-resolution data without the distortion sometimes present in 3D mesh models and are commonly used in industry-standard software.
