REAMS acquires Steady Hawk to expand drone surveying capability
REAMS has acquired Steady Hawk Ltd to expand its innovative UAV (drone) and point cloud surveying technology, enhancing REAMS’ core service offering. The Steady Hawk team will be integrated into the REAMS business and led by Field Technology Specialist, Greg Rowell.
Steady Hawk is a family run business which utilises drones and specialist survey techniques to achieve professional and cost-effective surveys and data capture, working across the UK for a broad client base.
Drone imagery is an extremely beneficial tool for roof and infrastructure inspections and importantly, it can reduce risks to surveyors. Drones have the ability to fly close to buildings and into awkward positions, where other means of access may not be safe, appropriate or cost effective.
Steady Hawk’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved operatives utilise pre-planned flight routes to capture large volumes of building and estate information in a very short space of time. High definition reports in 2D or 3D, produced through REAMS’ in-house ELIAS technology platform, allow clear identification of defects and the required repairs, allowing clients to plan and budget effectively.
REAMS CEO Alistair Clements said:
“Steady Hawk is a natural fit for the REAMS business model, and they bring a highly technical and efficient service that will greatly complement our offering. This acquisition will allow us to improve our data collection processes and the volume of data we are able to collate, aggregate and interpret. We are delighted to welcome Greg and the team to the REAMS family and we are already seeing the benefits the acquisition will bring to our client base.”
Field Technology Specialist, Greg Rowell, said:
“I am delighted to join the REAMS team and I am already engaging with the existing client base to deliver these key services. Technology is moving quickly, and we can already see a time when a customer will pick up their tablet or put on a Virtual Reality headset and learn everything they need to know about their estate.”
