Drones in Construction
How drones can help in the Construction Industry
The presence of drones in construction means significant changes within the industry. Drones have already begun changing the way the construction industry operates, and those changes will have continued and lasting effects. Here’s a look at some of the ways we service the industry.
Drones greatly reduce the labor and time involved in producing accurate surveys. It eliminate much of the human error involved in the process and have the ability to capture necessary data in much less time than traditional methods would take.
Drones provide superior endurance and intelligence on job sites. Their ability to collect and report data allows work to be completed faster.
To better track the projects and present to associates, investors, and potential buyers, aerial images in high resolution are essential. As the construction site progresses, we capture timelapse aerial images and videos featuring the area and the evolution of the site.
AERIAL MAPPING AND 3D MODELING
Aerial mapping services can provide 2D and 3D surface data as well as multiple aerial photos merged together into one aerial image. This type of aerial image is described as an orthomosaic or even referenced as an orthophotomap. The method of data collection for an orthophotomap can target a specific area of interest, desired property, or corridor map. These specific areas can capture data at low altitudes with drone technology to produce a high quality and up-to-date aerial image. Drone technology methods can quickly collect data by a safe and cost effective operation for both mapping and 3D modeling applications. 3D modeling deliverables are one of many applications that can benefit from aerial data collection. Aerial data collection sets for 3D modeling can be exported and delivered tailored to your needs. Most recent client-tailored file types have included modified exports for implementation and integration into a BIM software solution.
Current drone applications and capabilities for aerial mapping and 3D modeling have included the following: aerial façade inspections, forensic engineering, structure inspection, roof inspection, insurance documentation and evaluation, residential construction, commercial construction, land development, heavy highway corridor mapping, industrial and manufacturing site logistics, commercial real estate, and residential real estate
Below are recent links, videos, and images for 3D modeling and aerial mapping examples. Do you have questions? Contact us! We would love to assist in creating an aerial solution for you!
Volumetric Analysis , Stockpile Measurements And Contour Data
Monitor As-Built Site Status To Stay On Task For BIM Scheduling.
Photogrammetry For Safe And Efficient Post Flight Inspection.
Document and measure sites from an aerial perspective. Monitor construction sites as they evolve, using highly precise georeference orthophotos, elevation and 3D data. View the as-built situation of your site for up-to-date measurements and continued analysis, making earthworks management and detailed virtual inspections more efficient and cost effective.
Due to it’s cost-efficiency, this technology enables the stage evolution of construction sites or quarries to be documented, something hardly possible before. We use a non-invasive data capture, with no need to interfere wth site work, providing a complete survey of stockpiles and earthworks via aerial data, giving a comprehensive coverage of intricate areas for precise measurements.
Analyze as-built site data, using easily updated orthophotos or 3D models. With our drone mappings, you will be able to conduct measurements and compare with current designs drawings. This process can be repeated on a daily basis, providing regular as-built updates required to keep the BIM process under control.
