Hughes And Salvidge Invests In Drone Technology

20th May 2016

Drones have become one of the hottest must-have pieces of technology in the past couple of years and Hughes and Salvidge has realised their potential.

Traditionally used by the military, we recently invested in a drone, or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for the business as a cost-effective means of capturing incredible birds-eye views of demolition sites and storytelling. Such footage could only previously be taken from costlier helicopters and light aircraft.

This new addition to our arsenal is further proof of our determination to stay ahead of the competition.

After undergoing extensive training and testing, our Project Managers are already getting to grips with the drone and finding it extremely useful.

It has most recently been in operation at 3 continuing projects of ours; a demolition assignment on the Isle of Sheppey, one at Arthur Pope House in Portsmouth and another at Corunna Barracks in Aldershot (photos displayed).

And it will continue to be used over the coming months and years, so expect to see some spectacular drone footage on our website and social media accounts very soon.
