Housing Associations

The Challenge

All social landlords need to be able to gather detailed building information on their stock to inform what remedial work may be required. This is necessary to meet the Government Fire Safety Bill Regulations, which became law after the devastating Grenfell tragedy. The Fire Safety Bill states that all Housing Associations must inspect their exterior cladding by end of 2022.

The issue – how do they complete this in a quick and cost-effective way without the need of assembling scaffolding in place for a lengthy period of time as well as managing associated surveyor costs?

The Solution

Drone surveys provide a strong answer to this challenge.

The flexibility, accuracy and access drones can offer is unparalleled, particularly in accessing rooftops and other difficult to reach areas. Providing this sxervice is Vantage UAV. We are a progressive Drone inspection company with ample experience working alongside Housing Associations.

Using Drones, Vantage UAV have inspected a variety of large buildings throughout the UK using equipment and sensors to produce data that is then sent to the Housing Association.  Coupled with the 3D Digital Twin building model where required, a Digital Twin of the Building can be produced.

Services we offer include but are not limited to; Roof inspections, 3D Modelling & Thermal Imaging

Building Information Modelling

Building Information Modelling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that allows for more efficient construction and management of buildings and infrastructure.

Every detail of a building is modelled into a digital twin, this is a digital replica of physical assets, processes, people, places, systems and devices that can be used for various purposes.

Having the Digital Twin in place enables assets to be tagged allowing for emergency services to see the most effective fire escape routes, as well as providing essential information about maintenance issues to ensure all assets, for example fire doors, are up-to-standard and when they next require testing.
