Industry Leading | Safe Work Methods | Accurate Surveys | Reputable and Reliable

A drone helps with on-site inspection, investigation, progress tracking and site surveying. This makes the once difficult task of conducting visual inspection at heights, over water or underneath bridges faster, safer and more manageable. No longer do we need months of planning required permits and navigating multiple approvals to conduct inspection activities. However, the drone camera captures image and video in real-time or for desktop analysis its how we categorise and present the data to our clients that makes all the difference. Avian Australia has developed a cataloging and indexing methodology that gives you meaningful data that is easily referenced and reviewed for desktop analysis and reporting. This often involves gathering and converting site information into 2D maps and 3D models using a process called photogrammetry

Here are some key drone services we offer:

  • Aerial inspections 
  • Land surveying
  • Topographical maps
  • 3D laser scanning
  • Worksite inspection 
  • Geospatial models
  • Digital Media – photography and video

Aerial Surveying

Quickly Identify Asset Issues and Capture Site Data

Using a solid workflow and proven processes, drones can capture a substantial amount of data in a short timeframe. Plus the aerial perspective is used to gi ve project managers, engineers and architects information that is unable to be gathered as cost effectively or as quickly as when using drones.

Drones are increasingly used for investigation work like inspection, monitoring and maintenance activities. Also combined with surveying and 3D laser scanning processes the drones are able to provide aerial images that can be incorporated into point cloud data captured using laser scanners.

Asset management involves assessing existing conditions, inspecting structures, pipelines and conducting periodic inspections on machinery, facades and equipment etc. for damages, corrosion, leakage etc. Using drones as part of the inspection workflows improves planning, extends asset life and informs maintenance schedules. Our clients inform overall decision making to achieve objectives faster, safer and smarter than traditional methods.

FAQs about Drone Services in Melbourne

We have answered some common questions AEC clients have about drone services in Melbourne.

Drone photography is more engaging and allows us to capture a site from more unique perspectives. Also, the aerial images and video are more visually impressive and capture the attention of the viewer due to the more interesting views. 

Drone photography and videography is increasing in all market sectors, not just the more popular sectors like real estate and property. We are finding more traditional sectors and industries are utilising drone images and video to set themselves apart from the competition and to get their business noticed.

This depends on the distribution channels or uses of the images and video. We capture stunning aerial photography from helicopters, drones, balloons and EWPs (elevated work platforms) for our clients across Australia. 

At Avian, we provide a full suite of digital media and visualisation services to clients, making their work easier. You can check out our drone services cost guide for more information on our pricing.

Of course, at Avian we have worked with AEC clients who utilise us for full end-to-end digital media and marketing as we also offer 360 photography, 3D visualisations, renders and full in-house video production. You can see some examples of our media work here.

We are experts in civil construction road projects and have strong experience working on major road projects for project updates, terrain mapping, surveying and monitoring site compliance and activity.  We also use drones to detect contractor issues, track on site activity, ensure worksite safety and to provide regular project updates to clients.

You can learn more about how drones are used for road construction in this blog.
