How to inspect your building exterior quickly and efficiently?

Drone Facade Inspection

Carrying out a physical inspection at a busy construction site can be dangerous and may raise various safety concerns. With the use of industrial drones to carry out inspection works, precise and accurate visual data can be acquired with ease; the data collected can be used for a myriad of purposes.

Building Facade Inspection

Conventional building inspection would require the erection of a scaffolding which can be time-consuming, costly, and risky. The use of a drone would eliminate those problems. By identifying potential building issues through thermal imaging analysis, faults can be rectified accordingly.

Roof Top Inspection

Maintenance inspection on high structures such as towers, roofs and bridges incur extra costs, and cause issues of access arrangement and personnel working at height. Drone inspection provides the fastest and easiest solution to acquire details of the structures; the engineer on the ground can receive real-time footage during the process.

Manual Facade Inspection

  • Manual Process
  • Not 100% Visual Inspection
  • Human Error
  • Expensive Equipment & Logistics
  • Long Inspection Lead Time
  • Coordination & Adminstrative Work
  • Documentation & Archival Challenges
  • Tedious Setup

Automating and Digitizing Building Facade Inspections

GisDrones Facade Inspection platform is capable of detecting over 30 building and facade defect types, including cracks, corrosion, & paint peeling.

Take Your Work to New Heights

The pain points of inspection the building using the conventional methods

Most inspections are carried out by people, which is costly, risky, and tedious. The process of marking out defects, taking photos and churning out a report is taking from 4-8 weeks depending on the building dimension

GIS Drones Drone Facade Inspection platform, which is operated by a one or two-man team, aims to slash the time taken to a few days using AI to mark facade defects.

Frequently Asked Questions


It’s an inspection that put focus on the entire building envelope to identify defects and anomalies such cracks, corrosions and leaks

GisDrones uses machine learning algorithms to speed up the process of anomaly identification and provides an overview of defects on web-based dashboards. Automated generated reports in various formats are also available for download highlighting issues found on a building in a fraction of a time compared to current manual inspection processes.

Most solutions in the market are manual and require expensive scaffoldings, robes or cranes. The rare few that do engage drones are still very manual, requiring manual inspection of the images and data collected. GisDrones automates the interpretation of the data and reporting through automated workflows reducing the time taken by over 80%. Our clients have experienced over 50% cost savings and most importantly mitigate safety challenges with work-at-height.
