What we do

2D / 3D Mapping, Inspections, Testing & More

on land

From volumetric measurements to dramatically improved data collection & analysis, as well as 3D modelling and earthworks calculations – there’s no limit to how useful drones can be when it comes to civil engineering and earthworks.

in the air

Our drones capture the most stunning stills and videos at resolutions up to 6K and rich HDR colour. Whether you need aerial photography or videography for events, marketing, real estate, sports, engineering inspections or anything else – we have you covered.


Safety is paramount in construction. We help you maintain a required standard by providing thorough inspections in hard to reach places such as the ceilings and under the floors. Our rovers are equipped with latest tech to give you important insights into your project.
