UAV (Drones) For Construction

construction-dronesConstruction is an industry where UAV usage will, before very long, experience mainstream adoption.  The amount of time and money saved by employing a DFS Drone into a construction project is too much to ignore; for companies that run multiple projects at a time, a high tech UAV will be a staple you’ll wonder how you ever lived without!

So just how can a DFS drone be used to save a ton of time and money in construction?  Let us count the ways:

Project Planning and Land Surveying

Surveying a job site is a snap with a DFS drone, which simply follows a set flight path (by itself) and, with our smart software, can build an incredibly useful 3D map of the entire area.  You’ll save all kinds of time, your data will be MORE accurate and you’ll save big on deploying a costly ground team as well as surveying tools.

Progress Monitoring

Regardless of the scope of your project, a client (or boss) will want to know how the work is coming along.  With periodic DFS drone flights, you can simply and quickly show advancement on the project at any level of detail you wish.

Structure Inspection

Inspecting structures on site, whether new or pre-existing, is done simply, inexpensively and most of all, safely, keeping humans from unnecessary peril.  Inspection is an area where high-tech drone usage is already beginning to explode.

Monitor Multiple Job Sites

For firms that run several large projects at a time, a simple flyover saves a superintendent or manager a trip by clearly showing detailed footage of any aspect of the job that needs to be analyzed.

Inventory/Material Management

DFS drones are equipped with high-tech cameras and sensors that provide invaluable data in regards to material and aggregate inventory.  An easy flyover provides amazingly accurate  measurements of piles of materials such as sand, gravel, crushed stone, clay and more.  No more spending days at a time walking and measuring piles and shelling out big money hiring costly surveyors; accurate measurements can now be provided same day.

Information like this is invaluable in conducting audits and staying within budget.

Safety Management

Periodic flyovers simply to inspect specific areas of the job that may present safety hazards can save a company thousands, if not millions in the long run. Areas positioned high off the ground can be easily inspected in great detail, at no danger to an inspector or employee.

Stay on Track and Under Budget

Continuous monitoring of a job site via a DFS Drone helps to unearth small issues before they turn into big ones and provides valuable data that helps to keep projects from going over budget, while keeping a team focused on the goals at hand.
