Expert Central Team

Your drone data in safe hands

At Nationwide Drones safety is paramount, not just to protect our own liability, but more importantly to protect yours as our valued customer. That’s why the first step to any project you task us with, is for one of  our operations experts to carry out a thorough site safety investigation. This will highlight any potential hazards and risks to the pilot and drone; as well as property, infrastructure and perhaps more importantly pedestrians.

It’s at this stage we determine whether or not an OSC is required; for example if the project is in a city centre.


Working with Nationwide Drones under their OSC, we were able to inspect our clients inaccessible roof quickly with minimal disruption and without putting any of our staff at risk

Once we’re satisfied a project can be undertaken safely, the second step in a successful operation is for a relevant in house expert to discuss the project with you. Whether building surveying, structural or civil engineering, construction project management, right through to cinematography, we have a team member with the experience and accreditations to understand and deliver your requirement. This involves proposing a suitable means of collecting the correct data; meaning using the appropriate drone and sensor to allow our relevant expert to produce the data set or report tailored to your need.

To provide our clients with the best possible service, we’re aware we can’t do it all ourselves, so we often work strategically with the other leading organisations in their field. Follow our blogs to read about some of our collaborative projects.

We’re always looking to broaden our range of partners, so if your organisation offers expertise or consultancy in any of the following – building surveying; structural and civil engineering; utilities and measured scanning; CGI and media; infrared; or any other relevant sector, then please do get in touch
