Drone Aerial Photography of the Catterick Flood Scheme in Yorkshire.
Drone Aerial Photography in Yorkshire gives our team a never ending series of great projects to film. Throughout 2016 – 2017, we worked with The Environment Agency who are responsible for creating this reservoir designed to protect the homes of residents in Catterick village in Yorkshire. The £6m scheme was created to avert flooding on the A1M and nearby villages and has been completed.
Periodic Site Visits
Throughout the project, our team were on site at various times to provide aerial photography. Our York location for drone filming hire proving to be a useful platform for cost effective visits to the site. Between May 2016 and October 2017, monthly visits were made to monitor construction progress. After each visit we produced a video and a set of high resolution images. The media was used to update the team, plan works going forward and promote the project on social media. The video at the top of this page is an edit incorporating all site visits to show the full project construction. The aerial photographs and video have helped the Environment Agency in planning, monitoring and promoting the scheme. Brough Beck has proved vulnerable to flooding in the past, and overtopping has led to problems downstream in Catterick village. In the event of a storm, the reservoir will hold back up to 91 million gallons of water and slow the flow of the beck as it heads towards the village and the A1(M).
Because Hopgrove are fully certified by the Civil Aviation Authority for commercial drone filming hire, we are able to film from the air with all of the required permissions in place and ensure we are always legally compliant on site. Together with the £10 million public liability insurance we carry and the CSCS certification for construction site safety, we were able to film alongside any construction team as they worked to complete a project.
