The growing benefits of drone footage in property and construction
Roof inspections - aerial site surveys - safety assessments - drone videos of real estate promotion - 3D imaging - aerial solar panel inspection - flood management - risk management - wind turbine surveys - marketing and promotion using drone video and photos - property developers - drones to aid surveyors - building documentation - architecture - landscape architects - hard to locate areas - refurbishments - civil engineering - town planning
7 ways drones in the construction industry can improve speed, safety and cost
The use of drones is becoming more and more popular in the construction industry. Its a no brainer as to why...
1 Elementary 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. Bridge, 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 – great for those who aren’t always able to get to the site; a one minute video will quickly show clients, architects and engineers the current status.
6 Marketing – take clients and potential clients on a video journey of the construction site to demonstrate what the process, status is and to increase trust in the product. BIM from aerial images will bring the project to life bringing in early sales.
7 Portfolio – ideal aspect to demonstrate the finished product as well as a great way to see the view from the penthouse before the foundations are laid; BIM again.
As drone technology and supporting software and technology develop, drone use will be standard practice.
