Sunderland, Nissan – Vehicle Production Unit

DroneCam Solutions Ltd were appointed to provide weekly aerial images over a 70-week period for a large £120m distribution centre in Darlington, the requirement for imagery was to be used within monthly progress reports as visual references to support the written reports. Our High-Definition images were also used by a multitude of teams on site thanks to the easy to digest information that they were able to provide.

Due to the ever-changing layout of the site as the development progressed, the aerial images we provided were used within the weekly induction meetings. This was in order to highlight to sub-contractors and teams where the designated walkways, traffic routes and welfare station were located. The images were also used by site management to document areas which were both ahead and behind schedule and planning teams were able to use the images to aid with traffic management systems in and out of the site which were in turn, sent on to local authorities.

We also provided aerial video instalments on a monthly basis which documented the growth of the site, the video was produced and delivered in both 4k resolution and 1080hd so that our client could easily share this both amongst the team and on their website and other online platforms.

The equipment we used for this was the DJI Phantom 4 and the DJI Mavic Pro, these drones were capable of producing high quality imagery and aerial video footage. Both drones were selected to be used on site due their built-in safety features that include intelligent flight modes and obstacle avoidance.

We had a 100% safety track record on this site, thanks to our stringent RAMS and procedural process.

Below, you will see images which are from a 5-week interval to show the progress of the development.
