Course drainage and irrigation
Effective water management is essential for optimising the usage of a facility, particularly in winter, and also has a huge part to play in increasing sustainability.
We can advise on solutions for a playing surface and its surrounding infrastructure.
Parks, cemeteries and amenities
STRI also supports local authority, heritage sites, historic attractions and cemeteries, all places which need to withstand heavy footfall all year round.
We have trained CAA licensed drone pilots, who can undertake drone surveys and interpret captured data.
Drone services include topographical mapping, NDVI (normalised difference vegetation index), habitat and plant surveys, coastal erosion mapping and construction monitoring.
Drone footage is also invaluable for visualising the end result of a project, often crucial in gaining stakeholder buy-in. 3D maps and models can be modified to show the result of modifications or development projects.
