About us

Welcome

We are proud to present our work. These projects are built using latest technologies and best talents. The benefits of our building methods guarantee quality for many years to come.

Excellent Quality. Every Time.

Shamrock Drones is now Shamrock+

Our origin story began with drones and using them to solve different problems.  What we quickly realized is that drones are just tools.  We succeed in analyzing our clients’ needs and adapt to their unique situation.  Our project managers take the time to understand the challenges and obstacles to create innovative solutions that provide a foundation for relationships instead of transactions.   Whether it be capturing the perfect moment or virtualizing entire landscapes, we cater our services to the proper resolution.  We are a partner that helps conserve valuable resources such as human capital, time, and money.

We became more than just Shamrock Drones, we are Shamrock…. plus so much more.

The Shamrock+ team is continually refining our methods to improve offerings to our clients. That’s why we are members of professional organizations and strive to be effective service partners – so that we can provide the best value in high quality service to you.
