We were recently commissioned to inspect the 1000 square metre roof of an industrial unit in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire. The imagery was required to support a condition report which had been commissioned by the potential new owner of the unit, as they wanted to know the state of the building before handing over their money!
Our client was structural engineering firm Bond Davidson, and we worked closely with one of their structural engineers to make sure all areas of interest were captured in the survey — these were primarily the condition of the bolts fixing the roof panels in place, the general condition of the roof panels themselves, the condition of the gutters and the condition of the roof around any protrusions through the roof's surface, eg. chimneys.
