Construction


We help you in monitoring and marketing your construction project from difficult-to-reach vantage points to detect deviations from your plans early.

Applications for Drones

  •   Aerial photography
  •   Construction site monitoring
  •   Moving parts recognition
  •   Real-time progress monitoring
  •   Vantage point photography
  •   Marketing material
  •   3D modeling
  •   Distance measurement
  •   Jobsite safety inspection
  •   Worker safety and productivity inspection
  •   Autonomous site work
  •   LiDAR mapping

Drones offer unprecedented aerial images of a project site. Much more accurate and realistic than aerial photographs.

Construction projects are complicated, time-consuming and resource-intensive projects. Most of the advanced construction projects are transformed with drones. In speaking with architects, we have found that drones being used in architecture and construction are becoming more and more commonplace.



Increase Efficiency and Safety on Jobsites

Monitoring activity across a large, complex construction site is particularly difficult because there are moving parts and because the jobs being performed change frequently. The near-real-time aerial images and software analysis being used provides a more comprehensive picture of what’s going on, and can highlight how a slowdown in one area may affect the entire project. Drone technology enables you to identify construction progress and any deviations from a plan.

Mapping and multi-spectral sensors allow you to capture geo-referenced imagery. This data can be use to create 3D modeling for pre and post construction modeling.

You use drones to quickly survey your job site and build maps. Professionals are taking advantage of drones as they reach inaccessible locations or vantage points that would normally require additional equipment. Drones can operate autonomously using predefined flight paths or fly manually using a remote control.



A World of Potential Applications

Several reasons speak for drones on construction sites and why we encourage enterprises to consider planning them in:

  • Project Planning and Marketing: Drones can be equipped with HD cameras capable of taking stills and video to provide aerial imaging which can then be used to create maps and 3D models of construction sites. LiDAR, laser scanning, and other sensors are also being used to map and model sites.
  • Commercial Construction Stakeholders: Showing the views of and from planned buildings is helpful for getting clients, investors, or lending institutions to support the project. CAD drawings are commonly drawn, but a drone can capture a real-life image. Integrate a 3D model over an aerial imagery of a site.
  • Documentation: An architect wants to document each phase of the construction as part of its story. This documentation is much easier and much cheaper using drones. This can be done without sending inspectors to potentially dangerous and difficult-to-access areas, such as unfinished roofs.
  • Liability: Whenever you have different groups of people working together on a project, there are inevitable problems that can sometimes lead to court. Having video footage that details the construction process can be invaluable.
