building, constructed in 1877 is currently closed until 2024 to allow work to be undertaken to safeguard and repair the Grade 1 listed building.
Ahead of major works commencing, IRIS Group Flight Operations Manager, Ross Deyzel led a team of highly skilled pilots and Observers in completing detailed external architectural photography of the entire structure. Operating within a busy city centre, IRIS Group had to use their Congested Area Permission allowing flights to within 10m of buildings and structures as well as liaising with Surveyors, Manchester City Council, the Police and several other Public Bodies. Flights also had to be undertaken over the ‘live’ tram system.
The Operation was completed in a safe and structured manner to the complete satisfaction of the client.
