Building Visualisation

With the use of drone technology, it has become easier than ever to visualise and analyse the built environment around us, and it’s something that we get asked to do with increasing frequency. Using highly accurate specialist drones to gather the data, we process this to compile a point cloud, a set of data points that represent the physical features of a space or area, such as buildings, trees, streets and landscapes. This is captured with an accuracy of around 1cm, meaning it can be used for measuring features from the comfort of your office.


Once a point cloud has been generated, this can be further processed into a 3D model, to allow it to be viewed from any angle, and also put into 3D software packages for further modelling or design work. There are many benefits to using point clouds and 3D modelling, including:

  • Accuracy – 3D models and point clouds are highly accurate representations of buildings and landscapes
  • Details – they can capture a high level of detail, which is great for visualising projects for clients
  • Efficiency – capturing data with a drone is quick and low cost compared to traditional methods

Our usual clients for this type of service include building surveyors, architects, engineers, designers and planners. Using the data generated point clouds and models, these are imported into their software systems and can be used stand-alone or added to ground captured laser generated point clouds to give an entire model to be used for showing clients how a building looks now, how a landscape will look with a proposed building, or to carry out measurements to understand volumes of stockpiles and other features on-site.

To ensure the operation is carried out in the safest manner possible, it’s important to make sure who you use for point cloud generation with a drone is fully qualified to do so, holds the correct permissions from the Civilian Aviation Authority, and is adequately insured to cover both you and them in the unlikely event that something unexpected happens, fortunately, Quayle Industries Ltd has you covered!

We are based in Newark-On-Trent so can easily travel to any part of the UK if needed. If you are looking for an experienced drone pilot contact us by calling 0333 2104420 or email hello@quayleindustries.co.uk
