Kirkby Diamond is dedicated to providing our clients with a forward thinking best in class service. Therefore we have added an additional service line offering the use of the latest drone technology.
Carrying out drone surveys is slowly becoming standard practice as many industries move to minimise health and safety risks with the use of drones reducing the need to work at heights. Using a drone is also quicker and cheaper than traditional methods such as scaffolding. We carry out a wide range of drone surveys for many different industries.
We utilise FPV (First Person View) drones in addition to the more commonly used GPS drones. When combined with the more traditional methods of ground cinematography, we can push the boundaries of what is possible to achieve. We will deliver an immersive, innovative and creative video production, which is great for, but not limited to PR use, marketing, advertising channels and social media posts.
Our experienced drone pilot, is also an experienced surveyor with an eye for detail, ensuring we deliver fantastic results. Our drone pilot is GVC and A2 CofC qualified.
