Bird’s eye view helps piggery planning – October 2016


Suffolk-based company Quality Equipment is using aerial technology to help it carry out site surveys. A drone takes still images and videos of plots for pig new housing and other farm building projects.

The bird’s eye views will help the company identify the best layout, access points and any potential problems on sites for new houses or extensions, before submitting plans to the authorities in the normal way.


Pictures or videos from the remotely-controlled drone will also give farmers a genuine over-view of how their projects are progressing, especially useful for companies whose headquarters may be some distance from the farms where the buildings are bring constructed.

“The drone will help carry out clear site surveys and help identify potential risks or hazards for our site workers” commented Aidan Hubbard, Quality Equipment’s Construction Manager.
