"I've worked with Dave for almost 15 years."

"I've worked with Dave for almost 15 years. He has provided land and measured building surveying services to my clients. As well as his surveying skills I find that his wider understanding of and interest in what is required for particular jobs, in terms of scope and technology, results in his services being really valuable in producing accurate information that can be readily and usefully applied to the projects I work on."

"Absolutely blown away"

"We've worked well with David as a setting-out engineer but recently got the opportunity to witness the firm's latest 3D modelling of a live site via drone capture and modelling software & was absolutely blown away! The applications for this output are endless, capturing heritage assets and 3d models of museum pieces has been mooted BUT, with David a CAA Licenced pilot - the CDM Health & Safety aspects of the service really leap out at me: Surveying a building after fire damage, no risk to the surveyor and much safer planning for the construction team, opportunities to save buildings which might otherwise be demolished. Surveying roofs & Chimneys, either after storm damage or for preventative maintenance - no scaffolding required, quicker, cheaper, SAFER.... So Fire Services, Insurance Underwriters, Home & Commercial Premises owners.... check out David's work & ask for a quote, you'll be stunned how much you save on finding out the true situation outside of your practical sight li"

"Roof Survey"

"I used crucial services to survey our roof. The problem area had access issues and flying the drone not only identified the problem easily, it was also extremely quick. Will definitely use them again if needed"

"Drone roof survey: Ludlow"

"Promptness of response : David contacted me very quickly after my enquiry. I explained what I needed and we discussed the job. He returned a competitive quotation the next day which I accepted and the job was completed within a week.
Quality of service : David downloaded the survey within a couple of days of making it. While he was at the property he made suggestions about future work I was planning and was very helpful to one of the neighbours.
Value for money : Although not cheap, the survey was competitive, and was both quick and thorough. Much easier than having scaffolding and a physical examination.
Professionalism : David has a drone pilot’s licence, and is a chartered surveyor, so is able to give advice on future work needed. His handling of the drone and his explanations of what it was doing were fascinating."
