HOW DOES THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY APPLY DRONES TO THEIR BUSINESS?

The construction industry is complex. Construction pros need technology that won’t add to the complexity of a project but instead help to simplify it. Drone maps and models are a cost-effective, user-friendly way to help achieve this goal. We make construction site progress tracking more efficient by delivering continuous data and analysis for both planning and operations. Resources are better managed. Downtime is reduced. Projects are kept on schedule and under budget.
Speed is also essential to construction projects. Constantly working against timelines, with a need to have access to real-time insights to make smart decisions. Drone maps make it easier and more efficient to manage work as it happens and monitor site progress over time. Your superintendents, project managers, and survey managers can use Us daily to produce accurate 2D and 3D surface data for use throughout the project. By bringing together pre-construction topographic surveys, project estimates, civil survey designs, project earthworks volume tracking, and as-built surveys in one platform, all your data is available online whenever, and wherever, you need it to ensure your project is on track.
  • Management oversight: Keep real-time tabs on projects with regularly updated overhead maps. For in-depth analysis, zero in on key areas, often with enough resolution to see individual studs.
  • Site progress: Track progress against 3D models and aerial views. How many floors have been built in the past week? Are the builders following the plan? Are we on track to complete the project by the deadline?
  • Improved communication: Share maps and models with internal and external stakeholders for streamlined communications. Keep everyone in the office up-to-date and informed — even if you’re still on site.
  • Site planning & surveying: Instead of hiring a survey team to survey a greenfield site, you can hire a drone business to perform the same job faster, with as much accuracy, and at a lower price point. In some cases, this information is even more accurate because drone-generated point clouds gather millions of points compared to the hundreds gathered in a ground-based survey.
  • Stockpile measurement: Instantly measure stockpile volumes so you can make on-the-spot decisions about your materials needs.
  • Safety improvements: Identify safety concerns in real time, so your team can address them quickly. Reduce the time employees and contractors spend on roofs, steep slopes, and other dangerous areas.
  • Virtual design and construction: Export drone-generated point clouds into 3D design software for powerful insights. Ensure site progress is in step with original design plans.

The Benefits of Aerial Intelligence for Construction Projects

Drones are providing construction companies with a new method for accurate survey work throughout their entire worksite.

  • Reduce up to 20% of total project costs by eliminating rework through regular cut and fill analysis of drone data
  • Eliminate up to 10% of earth moving costs through more accurate volumetric analysis
  • Perform more frequent surveys in-house with drones, reducing traditional survey equipment and service costs.
