WHAT ABOUT DRONE
Bringing Business Into New Heights
Prevent Costly Mistakes
Drones can be equipped with cameras, geo-location sensors, infrared sensors, and more to capture precise details about the environmental and physical site prior to and during construction. The high-resolution images captured by a drone are then turned into accurate 2D orthophotos and 3D models, creating a rich digital representation of your jobsite. Then, drone data platforms make it easy to overlay design files onto drone maps, enabling you to pinpoint constructability challenges in preconstruction, spot mistakes, and measure progress during construction.
Provide Better Project Updates
Owners and other stakeholders understandably demand progress updates on a regular basis. This can be a pain for you, if you have to walk the site or send someone to take photos. Drones can make this aspect of the job both a painless experience for you, and a better experience for them.
Drones improve collaboration by collecting data on-site and distributing it through though specialized platforms. Virtual design teams, engineers, superintendents, owners, and contractors can then access aerial views and related data from their tablets and other devices.
This enables everyone to see where things were yesterday, compare progress over time, and catch any discrepancies before they become serious problems.
Contractors carry significant risk on every project. From being overbilled on one side, to being underpaid on the other, to mistakes, rework, missed deadlines, and legal challenges, few industries provide as many opportunities to lose money.
Data from drones can help mitigate many of these risks by identifying problems before they arise, providing accurate data regarding disputes, and documenting the process against legal challenges.
