Dragon UAV is extremely proud to announce that we have been nominated by a major client Alun Griffiths Contractors Ltd as the “SME of the year” in the Sub-50 employee category of the prestigious Constructing Excellence Wales Awards 2019.

Griffiths’ Contractors who have recently completed the Newtown A483/A490 bypass, have worked with us since the beginning of the three year project, benefiting from monthly photographic records of the entire 6.5km site, along with regular flyover video to document the build and its progress. The media has also been used in planning, logistics and H&S management.

Nick Cleary, Project Manager for the bypass scheme said; “Working with Dragon UAV has been a positive experience… ..their focus on customer satisfaction was evident through all stages of the process. The aerial photography, video and time-lapse work are assisting us greatly in the management and documenting of the project and we look forward to working with Dragon UAV in the future. We have enjoyed working with a company that shares the same core mission – delivering a quality product safely, to time and budget.”

High praise indeed !!

Stu Trigg, owner of Dragon UAV is delighted to have been nominated; “As Alun Griffiths work with a great number of SME’s in the construction industry, to be recognised and appreciated for the efforts we have made is hugely rewarding. We continue to work with Griffiths on other projects as well as out other clients including ARUP, EvaBuild, Hughes Architects and Cleveland Bridge. We will of course continue working within the Mid Wales business community to assist where we can with digital heritage, marketing and tourism and promotion of the great businesses and industry we have in the area. We have had footage featured on the BBC, on ITV and S4C as well as in the national and international press and take every opportunity to promote Mid Wales as a destination.

“With the Business Wales “Tourism Business Innovation Award” given for our dedication to local heritage and digital preservation, and the recent Powys Business Awards “Start-Up Business Award” recognising growth and an eye to the positive future of aerial media it is great to be recognised for the efforts we make to stand out the Drone industry, one that is easy to enter and hugely difficult to succeed in !

Now its fingers crossed time.. Stu will be making a presentation to a panel of Judges at the end of April, and will hear the results at a ceremony held at the Celtic Manor, Newport in June
