The construction sector is the number one growth area for the use of drones. Whether doing a one-off house, or new development, drones have many advantages you can leverage.
Before breaking ground, drones can play a vital part in the planning process of new development. Traditional survey of sites is slow and laborious. Incorporating drones into your workflow can significantly speed up this process. With a detailed ortho-rectified map of the site, valuable information can be extracted. Site elevations give vital information for planning, such as flood prevention.
Regular aerial surveys during construction can have tremendous benefits. Mismanaged scheduling and purchasing can be eliminated. Stockpiles can quickly be surveyed and measured. A whole site view can yield savings and productivity improvements in the workflow.
We can produce 3D structural models, topographical maps and volumetric measurements.
One significant benefit that drones bring to a construction site is safety. The ability to get these calculations with machinery operational can have a huge impact. Surveyors are not in harm's way and shutdown of the site is not required.
We work with the leading software providers in the industry. We produce outputs in the format you require. We generate orthomosaics that can be imported into your CAD or GIS applications.
In addition to progress photos and videos, we go one step further and assist with health and safety on construction sites. Using drones for site safety and health and safety inspections, are inobtrusive, and can capture real data, not announced inspections, so you can tackle real issues.
