Drone Inspections

Taking Our Inspections Services to New Heights and Providing Our Clients With A More Efficient, Cost-Effective, and Reliable Inspection Process.

Our firm is all about providing top-notch services to our clients, which is why we opted to invest in a drone that offers the same quality that law enforcement and first responder professionals use. The DJI Matrice 300 RTK Drone is rugged/durable and is built to withstand even the most demanding and harsh environments. We can access tight spaces and hard-to-reach areas, where inspections may otherwise be more challenging when performed in person, such as bridges, cell towers, and other high-rise buildings or structures, therefore, eliminating those riskier inspections.

We’re already taking advantage of the most sophisticated methods of data collection, analysis, and evaluation. HCEA is taking advantage of this trend by taking it up a notch and adding drone capabilities to the mix.

Drone inspections not only help keep inspectors safe by removing the need to enter potentially dangerous scenarios, like climbing towers or high scaffolding, but drone inspections can also save companies a lot of money. For example, when it comes to preventative maintenance inspections that need to be performed on a regular basis, such as checking a cell tower, bridges, power lines, etc., to ensure structural integrity and standards are being maintained, it is not uncommon that only approximately 10-20% of inspections actually uncover a problem that requires fixing. Therefore, by using a drone for these particular situations, we can save clients up to 80-90% in maintenance expenses that would otherwise involve building scaffolding or other one-use infrastructure to allow a person to perform a manual inspection.

In addition, our drone inspections allow us to provide our clients with customized/automated investigations and inspections, specific to their project site conditions and needs. Having the flexibility to accommodate our clients’ exclusive needs through the use of our drone inspections, diverse service capabilities, and highly trained and knowledgeable staff is what separates us from other firms.
