Avoid costly construction delays with super-accurate earthwork volumetric measurements. Drones give you the most precise and convenient way to calculate cut-and-fill ratios.Let's talk
There is no room for error when calculating cut and fill. Excavating too much (or too little) results in increased labour costs and delayed work. Drones are a precise and efficient way to calculate cut-and-fill ratios without affecting your schedule. Engineers With Drones complete measurements for you faster than the traditional methods, while simultaneously streamlining your project.
Monitor earthwork changes over time for a fast and cost-effective way to avoid any discrepancies.
Get quick and precise readings on cut-and-fill measurements, allowing for seamless tracking and future ordering.
Record and document terrain more accurately, regardless of its elevation differences or vegetation density.
Record and compare your volume measurements over time, more cost-efficiently and with fewer man-hours.
Receive instant and actionable data relating to your loose, bank, and soil volumes.
Find all anomalies and potential problems that might otherwise go undetected.
Drones aren't just for flying up in the sky. Our specialist drones can fly into confined spaces like chimneys and boilers to look for issues that would otherwise be inaccessible.
Downtime is expensive and inconvenient. Using a drone, our engineers can conduct a thorough survey with little to no downtime.
Our equipment won't touch or even go close to your assets. Our high-resolution cameras use optical zoom to give extreme close-up views while staying a safe distance away.
We understand that you need answers fast. We can deliver a plain-English report with clear-cut conclusions in days. Then, you can take the steps you need to and get back to doing what you do best.
Need us there in a hurry? No problem. Let us know what you need, and we can be there on the same day. After all, sometimes the problem just won't wait.
Sometimes the brief can change even in real-time. If need be, you can be stood there right next to the drone operator, directing them as the situation develops.
The safety of your personnel and our own is paramount, and we place it at the forefront of our company culture. Ask us about our HSSE systems and practices.
Cut and fill analysis is incredibly versatile, and we use it in various types of inspections serving multiple industries.
We take emails, phone calls, messages, everything! If you are unsure of what's possible we are happy to advise, the most important thing is to get in touch. We would be delighted to answer any questions you may have.
With drones, it's best to begin where you want to end up. What sort of deliverable would you like when it's all finished? If you are not sure then we can advise. We can look at what you would like and work backwards from there.
Once we have agreed on what is to be done, the scope of work is set and a price is agreed upon. We feel it is vital that everyone knows what they are getting and what they are paying for it. There should be no confusion.
Once we have confirmation you are happy to proceed, we start the ball rolling. We organise things like RAMS, site permits, Air Traffic Control clearance and much more. Basically, we generate everything needed to turn up on-site with all our ducks in a row.
Next, we do the work on site. We have the gear, we have the know-how, so now it's time to get the job done. This can sometimes be affected by the weather, but for the most part, we get the job done on the date specified.
This is where we take what we generated in the field and turn it into a final deliverable for you. This can be anything from the raw data itself, to fully processed Orthophotos, condition reports, CAD line work or thermal imagery.
The final step is the handover of the deliverables. We tend to use a cloud-based service, so you can access your data anywhere. We can also tie into your existing systems if that is more convenient.
We purchase the latest drones as they come on the market to ensure you are getting the highest quality service from us at all times. Here is a quick look at what we would be most likely to use for a typical cut and fill analysis inspection.
Our flagship drone: The M300 RTK by DJI is the premier enterprise-level inspection drone on the market. With a flight time of up to 55 minutes, lots of built-in redundancy, and a host of payloads to choose from, this is our go-to UAV for inspection work. When coupled with the Zenmuse H20T camera, it is capable of safely inspecting high-value assets at a stand-off range.
Combined with our flagship drone platform DJI M300 RTK, the DJI Zenmuse P1 camera enables photogrammetry and 3D modelling of the highest standard. There are also interchangeable fixed-focus lenses, on a 3-axis stabilized gimbal, that provide robust versatility to help create stunning 2D, 3D detailed models.
The DJI D-RTK 2 mobile base station helps make accuracy easy. This GNSS receiver supports GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and GALILEO signals, allowing for centimetre-level positioning. The integrated IMUs monitor movements and calibrate tilt sensors to minimize risks.
