Decrease time spent on day-to-day work
Problems Being Addressed and Solved in The Construction Industry
Project Coordination and Communication
A huge part of a construction professionals job is to coordinate and communicate. With creating million-dollar projects, the need for spot-on commutation and collaboration is essential. Drones create 3D maps and models to give various sub-teams a detailed method of tracking each other’s work and can be used to verify when different phases of development have been completed.
Workplace injuries are a big concern for any employer, especially in the construction industry. Job-site injuries cost employers millions of dollars in compensation costs alone, according to OSHA. Using drones helps diminish serious injuries by identifying hazards with aerial photography and videography.
Gathering Accurate Data
Drones are used to collect mapping and modeling data. High quality maps can be produced faster and more affordable than with traditional methods. Industry professionals are analyzing and sharing the drone data with various teams in their company to increase communication and production within their respective projects. A few benefits include: pre-planning with orthomosiac maps, tracking development progress, calculating distances, and measuring volume. Drones help to track and organize all different types of projects.
Staying Within Budget
A lot of times, construction materials end up in landfills due to wrong calculations during pre-planning. This results in money spent for inadequate return. Using drone data collected for that area and apply it to a more accurate amount of needed materials for that project.
