BSI harnesses drone technology for clients

Partners with vScenario to provide 3D modelling services

BSI, the business improvement company, is now incorporating the use of drone technology as part of its assurance and professional services offerings. To help deliver this service, BSI has partnered with vScenario, an innovator in the field of 3D modelling services.

By utilizing the latest drone technology and 3D modelling, BSI will be able to collect and provide highly detailed data—such as inspection reports, real-time video footage, 2D or 3D maps, hi-res pictures, thermal/infra-red images, or gas/chemical/liquid sensor analysis—allowing clients the ability to make data-driven decisions. At the same time, the use of drones can mitigate the need for assessors, and clients, to enter dangerous locations or situations.

A few of the areas where BSI can use drones to assist with client needs are:

  • Visual plotting of high-risk areas
  • Environmental audits
  • Post disaster event evaluations and assessments
  • Remediation site monitoring and digitization of clean up progress
  • Monitoring of energy systems (e.g., surveying solar panels for cracks and exposed components and measuring CO2 emissions)
  • Construction site progress and comparison assessments
  • Agricultural commodity uses such as the monitoring of crops and encroachments of pollutants, ensuring sustainable practices, etc.

Dan Purtell, Director of Innovation at BSI stated: “Drones are rapidly transforming the way people gather information to make informed and timely decisions. By using drone technologies, not only does it enhance, and in many cases simplify, existing survey processes, but it also allows us and our clients to work smarter and safer.”
