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