Photogrammetry: This is taking a sequence of overlapping photos from a suitable distance, then applying them to a CAD (Computer Aided Design) and producing a drawing of the elevation; this is then our blank canvas to work from.

Scaffolding: This is then erected to the elevation at suitable lift (distance between the levels) heights so we can gain access.
