Building Inspection and Management
Drone Building Inspections
Ongoing building inspection and management is critical in ensuring your properties longevity and for providing a safe place for those utilising the facilities. The traditional physical inspections can be quite an involved exercise for huge commercial premises, warehouses and buildings that house mass production plants. Getting technicians to carry out physical inspections can be particularly risky on areas like the roof and the facade. Due to the amount of risk involved in reaching some areas of the building, the technician may resort to using estimates, avoiding difficult to access areas, compromising the accuracy of the outcome.
At Kapcher we use advanced remote data acquisition and imaging technology to take the risk out of building inspections. Devices mounted on drones and helicopters collect accurate data and images of the building’s exterior. This data is then run through software to create a detailed 3D model. Faults and defects can be easily identified from the digital representation of the building. These are just a few of the benefits you can expect when you use Kapcher’s building management solution.
Why Kapcher Only Makes Sense for Your Building Inspection and Management
The data collected from our building interior, roof and facade inspections is far more accurate than what you would get from the conventional hands-on method. Using drones and helicopter-mounted cameras and scanners, we are able to collect data from those areas that are inaccessible to human technicians. You will also have an archive of historical data which you can use to measure the effectiveness of your building management over time.
Non-intrusive data collection
No need for extensive shutdowns to perform an inspection and collect data. Obtaining modelling and maintenance data from contact-free drone inspection means you avoid the possibility of shutting down important elements of your business. It also means your staff can continue working with minimal interruption during the exercise.
Data in the formats you use
Results of our photogrammetric imaging and LiDAR scans can be converted into BIM or CAD files that can be used with your current facility management system. The CAD models can be shared and worked on collaboratively by members of your facility maintenance team even if they are located in distant geographic locations.
We have completed building inspections Melbourne property owners have found instrumental to the management of their assets. We have also produced critical data from building inspections Sydney facility managers have benefited from. Our services are available in all major cities including Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane.

Technologies We Use
Wondering where this technology can be used?
One of the benefits of 3D laser scanning technology is having information surrounding a renovation or building works in the future. In the case of a building project, Kapcher is able to provide accurate 3D models showing exact locations of services like electrical wiring, plumbing and HVAC systems.
Another technique we use to convert data collected from aerial building inspections into information useful for decision-making is the production of digital twins. Here, we use 3D models to easily identify faults in a building as well as track the condition of the building over time using timestamps.
