Queen Victoria Market Drone Roof Inspection


Queen Victoria Market is an inner-city Melbourne market with over 600 small businesses selling fresh produce, local and imported gourmet foods, clothing and souvenirs. Spread over two city blocks, the market and its building are iconic in Australia’s history dating back to 1878 and is listed on both the Victorian and the National Heritage Register.

Being a heritage-listed site, the structure requires regular inspections for maintenance and upgrade purposes. Traditionally, this would involve machinery such as a cherry picker or sending personnel on the roof for a visual inspection. This method can be time-consuming, costly and most importantly risky to personnel.

RBB, construction cost consultants, offer independent and objective advice for building projects on budgeting, monitoring and controlling costs and time involved in projects. RBB engaged with UAVisuals to find a cost-effective, time-efficient solution for inspections of the Queen Vic Market roof.


Operating on a day that the market was closed to the public, our two-manned crew was able to mobilise and get airborne in just minutes. We scanned 41,908 square meters of roof, providing a series of over 1200+ high-quality images of the area.

Risks were extremely low, no one needed to be on a roof and saved plenty of costs on the hire of machinery. We were able to offer quick and easy visual solutions using drones to provide both high-resolution photography and videography of the roof with minimal disturbances to the general public or surrounding businesses.
