Always Happy Clients

We would like to extend our appreciation for the services that ACS have provided. The detailed surveys have improved our health and safety process and the endless hours ACS have spent working on our projects and professionalism demonstrated have impressed the entire team. The diligence and great work have certainly installed trust in using ACS for future projects.

Aerial Construction Services provided us with aerial images and video content of our scheme in Leeds. The work was a challenge due to the height of the building and populated location. However, their professionalism, experience and attention to detail were exceptional and everything ran smoothly. Furthermore, they provided a quick-turnaround of the work and we look forward to future collaborations.

ACS run a very well-executed operation. They attended one of our main contract design and build jobs in Westbury, in order to photograph and film on the ground as well as from an aerial perspective. ACS covered all aspects of due diligence in terms of health and safety well in advance of the visit. The footage and photography produced are flawless, and we very much look forward to welcoming them again.

We were delighted with the service received which was of the highest quality and extremely professional. ACS completed the work within agreed timescales and resulted in fantastic video quality and still images to our bespoke specification. The work surpassed our expectation and we will have no hesitation in appointing and using ACS again in the future.

We would like to offer our appreciation to Aerial Construction Services. They provided us with some great quality photos and exceptional drone footage at our site in Boston, Lincolnshire. From the initial quotation to the final delivery, ACS carried out all aspects in an efficient and professional manner. We highly recommend the services of Aerial Construction Services to others.

Topographical Maps

We undertake orthomosaic mapping, which is bespoke to the requirements of the client. This is achieved by condensing several hundred images together to generate a geometrically corrected, yet detailed map.

Images are provided in an aerial format and through elevation, metric and seasonal information. Produced in either long-distance or macro detail, these maps can be extremely beneficial for planning purposes and progress reporting. Sectors which benefit from this approach include:

  • Real estate (individual property and entire estates)
  • Agriculture (identify crop health)
  • Highways and railways
  • Infrastructure
  • Energy

3D Modelling

Using the latest photogrammetry technology, we produce detailed three-dimensional representations of actual environments. They are created by combining hundreds of images using Point Clouds and 3D Textured Meshes, enabling them to appear real. The level of detail is determined by the GSD (Ground Sampling Distance). This is the number of pixels measured in relation to the ground; down to 1.4cm per pixel. The benefits include:

  • Information for feasibility studies, virtual inspections and option appraisals
  • Provision of virtual information, which can be shared remotely
  • A facility for distance and area calculations
  • Ability to rotate, zoom and deliver fly-through films

Thermal Imaging

Using specialist thermal sensors combined with FLIR software (the world’s leading thermal sensor producer), we are able to detect costly heat loss issues not visible to the naked eye in a timely manner. Operations include:

  • Provision of Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s)
  • Roof inspections and standing water
  • Solar panel deficiencies
  • Detecting moisture
  • Identifying micro-cracks, and more

Following every thermal inspection, we provide a comprehensive condition report highlighting specific areas where action needs to be taken. This ultimately saves our clients time and money enabling them to make informed decisions.
