The use of drones is becoming more and more popular in the construction industry. Its a no brainer as to why...
1 Initial survey of the land – detailed overall picture of the lay of the land.
2 Safety and Inspections - initial drone survey of elevated work and dangerous zones to get clear idea of situation. E.g. bridges, mines, church steeple.
3 Progress shots and documentation – drone time lapses from all angles in detail, tracking the progress, preventing any disputes.
4 Consultation – send out images of the area to all parties involved to get different recommendations and quotes.
5 Immediate Access and Communication – ideal for those who aren’t always able to get to the site, a minute video will quickly show clients, architects and engineers the status.
6 Marketing – take clients and potential clients on a video journey of the construction to demonstrate what the process, status is and to increase the trust in the product.
7 Portfolio – great aspect to demonstrate the finished product as well as a great way to see the view from the penthouse before the foundations are laid.
As the drone technology and supporting software and technology develop, drone use will be standard practice.
