Drone specialist wants rooftop areas for vehicles that could eventually carry passengers

Architect Barr Gazetas has won a contract to identify London locations where passenger-carrying drones can take off and land.

The studio will work with start-up Skyports to look for rooftop locations where landing infrastructure, known as vertiports, can be installed.

Skyports is creating a network of vertiports across London to service densely packed areas of the city. The company has already bought the rights to 15 rooftops in London but is looking to acquire more places to install the launch pads.
