Drones provide a more cost effective and safer method of collecting survey information whilst reducing risk as there is no longer need for staff to work at high level.
We offer a quick solution to building inspection. We liase with the client and they are able to see what the camera is relaying via a real time high definition downlink offering the client or surveyor the means to better control and view areas of interest as it happens, a more detailed analysis can then be viewed once the Drone is on the ground.

Landscaping Design and Mapping
Gone are the days of traditional manual landscaping processes. These days, drones are positively impacting the landscaping industry. Their ability to capture high-resolution aerial imagery assists service providers with land resource management. And with their ability for vertical take-off, they’re the perfect tool for monitoring large properties as well as small ones of 10 acres or less, or properties in condensed neighborhoods. Read on to learn more about the advantages of using drones for landscaping.
How can drones help improve efficiency for landscaping?
Using drones for landscaping benefits all parts of the process, including the pre-bid analysis. With drone technology, aerial imaging lets you capture real-time imagery of potential project sites.
Drone technology allows you to embed high-resolution UAV imagery in your existing GIS programs. This is cost effective because you aren’t required to replace all of your technology. And this also means your projects will stay on track because you don’t have to switch over to new systems. Your process will only be improved with high quality images.
Don't Take Our Word For It
Lee and his team have always delivered to the highest standard, we have used Harris Aerial Images on numerous occasions, from photography to roofing surveys and have always been impressed with their work.
We approached Harris Aerial Images for aerial filming for an advert we were producing for a client in London. Their team arrived on the day and were directed by us. Their approach was professional and the finish product was above standard. We have since used them for many other projects and we are always happy with the finished product.
Meeco Creative (London)
We originally approached Lee to see wether he could create images of my business parks from the air for our website. What he came up with blew us away, his company created 360 degree VR tours for both our sites and also site maps for the entrances of both business parks and well within the budget we had set for these projects.
Having been let down in the past, we contacted HAI with a view to use them for our Bristol 10k filming. What they produced was excellent. We have since used them on numerous projects and have a great working relationship. I cannot recommend them enough.
Made In TV
We have used Harris Aerial Images for some of our promo video and on the day Lee and his team have always been professional and courteous, always ready to take direction to produce some really epic shots.

We required a new commercial to be shot for our site at Westcott Venture Park in Oxford, along with Meeco London, HAI flew and filmed the aerial footage for the commercial. From the outset, we knew we would be looked after. Lee and his team listened closely to our ideas and with their own professional touch created exactly what we envisaged for the Park. They are coming back later in 2017 to update some of the new areas on the park. Excellent service all round.
