Construction

The use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for commercial purposes, particularly in construction, has been rapidly expanding. This is because drones are revolutionizing the way construction projects are carried out, starting from the pre-planning stage, improving productivity, tracking progress, conducting aerial inspections, and other related tasks.

Progress Monitoring

Utilizing aerial drone images for progress updates is advantageous for keeping construction projects on schedule and within budget. These images can be shared with project managers, stakeholders, and investors who have an interest in monitoring the project's progress. The frequency of capturing new images can be adjusted based on the building's pace, ranging from monthly to weekly or even daily updates.

Mapping

Drones can utilize the visual data they gather to create different kinds of maps, such as 3D, orthomosaic, and thermal maps. Each of these aerial maps has numerous advantages, from pre-planning to progress monitoring and comprehending a site's configuration. The data accuracy and precision provided by drone maps are impressive compared to the commonly utilized satellite imagery.

Stockpile Measurements

Employing drones to measure stockpiles can lead to notable time savings, enhanced safety, and reduced costs. By utilizing drone mapping software, measurements such as volume, density, and tonnage can be accurately calculated. This data can be used for real-time inventory updates and to ensure that the worksite is adequately stocked with required materials. Regular assessments of stockpiles can decrease the chances of overestimating material and supply orders, thereby minimizing waste and eliminating unnecessary expenses.

Inspections

Regular inspections are a necessary requirement during construction to ensure the safety, accuracy, and overall status of the project. However, some inspections can pose risks to workers and may cause inefficiencies, leading to time and cost overruns. To address this issue, employing drones can significantly enhance the speed and confidence of inspections among workers. 

Pre-Planning

Prior to commencing a construction project, it is essential to conduct a site analysis to ensure that the proposed site is suitable. The use of drones to gather visual data is highly advantageous in comprehending the layout, elevation, drainage areas, vegetation, and other essential aspects of the land. These images can be used to effectively communicate information to both employees and clients.

Material Reporting & Logistics

Drone footage can be utilized to track incoming building materials and verify their delivery. Daily inventory reports can guarantee that workers have access to the required materials while minimizing waste. Employing drone software can establish a well-structured logistics system for deliveries, including planning delivery routes and evaluating the condition of drop-off locations. This helps to prevent incomplete deliveries that might result from inadequate site planning.
