- Drone Aerial Photography and Video of Construction Projects
- Ground-based Construction Photography
- Full-Site mapping, including overlays
- 2D and 3D progress reporting using a custom portal
- Survey Grade Aerial Surveys
- Fixed Time-lapse cameras
- Custom-hosted maps with a date stamp and Points of Interest annotations
- Health and Safety audits
- Site security assessment – see from the air what isn’t apparent from the ground.
Drone Construction Monitoring Progression
We gather 1080p or 4K aerial footage and high-resolution images for our drone construction services. It can be hosted online using our custom platform or transferred to the client anytime. This gives an instant, unique perspective of the construction site. The hosting is online via password protection with a private URL. Many clients use the footage we capture as an audit trail for payment milestones and financing of their projects. The ability to easily share project progress with third parties and financial institutions can significantly speed up the process.
We value our client’s privacy and ensure we are GDPR compliant.
Whole Site Mapping
The Aerial Mapping process involves capturing a series of images in a grid pattern to cover the extent of the site. We then process these images and “stitch” them into one large site map. This can be transferred to the client or hosted online for easy sharing with teams and suppliers.
We can also date stamp and customise these maps to show the site’s progress. This allows visualisation of the site; we now offer this service in 3D and 2D.
Contact us today, and we will send you a link to a sample map.
Using drone technology to supplement and speed up traditional surveying. Gather actionable data from stockpiles or calculate material removal quantities. This is now faster and safer as all data is gathered without shutting down the site or putting surveyors in harm’s way. The speed of data collection allows for quicker decision-making; we can have these surveys turned around in hours if required.
Health and Safety Audits
Using drones, we record site activity during normal operations. This has many benefits in improving site safety and reducing hazards and accidents.
- Aerial perspective allows you easily see what’s not obvious from the ground
- No disruption to the site – audit is done during the full activity
- Capture “real” activity on site – not pre-warned inspections
- Reduces risk to safety officers by not having them in harm’s way
Why use a Drone Service Provider?
Many companies supply project managers or individuals on-site with a drone. Without the proper training and regulatory knowledge, they are putting their health and safety practices at risk and may fall foul of the IAA regulator. The use of drones in Ireland and the EU is a regulated industry.
We work with some of the industry’s leading construction and development companies, providing drone construction services to local and global-based companies.
Engaging an aerial service provider is proven to increase efficiency and safety on-site and keep projects on track. In many cases, construction progress can be ahead of schedule through efficiencies in surveying over traditional methods. Our aerial photography, site mapping and video of your construction project will give you a new and unique aspect and appreciation of the progress.
Site Security Audits
An often overlooked aspect when sites are being set up is equipment safety. An aerial site security assessment can show weak and vulnerable entry points. Surrounding vulnerabilities can lead to theft or damage on-site.
Having routine drone construction services such as Mapping and inspecting construction sites provides a point-in-time reference for security managers and insurance purposes.
Our drone pilots are the ultimate professionals and have completed safe pass courses for working in the construction sector. We take care of all elements of the drone operation, planning, executing and processing the data.
Fixed cameras on site capture still images every number of seconds or minutes over long periods. This records progress from start to finish and can be configured to work during specific work hours. We offer several solutions from the lower end to our high-end solar-powered offering with 4G connectivity for real-time remote access. This option is a valuable extension to our drone construction services and allows constant site monitoring.
We can create custom time-lapse sequences for specific times and dates at short notice and share the results within minutes.
