    Save Time and Money Using Drones for Design and Engineering

    • Inspect the twelfth floor of a structure safely.
    • Engineers on the ground can receive HD footage in real time.
    • Time Lapse video monitors a sites progress.
    • With thermal imaging see beyond what the naked eye allows.
    • Impress clients using aerial video or photography marketing.

    6-Ways to use Drones in Construction Projects

    1. Surveying

    You can use drones to quickly survey your job site and build maps. Instead of using human resources, heavy machinery & expensive surveying tools, that produce complex data, you can get the job done in half the time & money, with greater accuracy.

    2. Showing Clients the Progress

    When clients stay away from the job site and cannot afford to come to the site again & again & your current pictures are just not doing justice, drones can be an inventive way to keep them happy. Just be sure to cover only those areas that are in good progress.

    3. Monitoring Job Sites

    When you have to frequently shuttle between multiple job sites or have taken up simultaneous renovation & facelift for multiple properties; putting up a drone to monitor the progress, work, safety standards and much more can save you a lot of energy, time & money.

    4. Inspecting Structures

    Instead of employing heavy software, lots of people and relying on complex readings, you can employ a drone to get a first-hand view of how solid your structures are, how aesthetically pleasing they are coming up, and where they are moving out of the plan, all in a jiffy.

    5. Better Safety Records

    With your eyes & ears in the sky, all the time, you will be in a much better position to locate that unstable pillar, precariously balanced laborer and not deep enough excavations.

    6. Keeping the Project On-track, On-Budget

    By identifying the parts of the project that are going off-track, having the ability to prevent any causalities, rigorously monitoring your job sites; you will be much better prepared to remove any additions to project time and cost.

    Regardless if you fly the drone or hire a professional, there are a number of local, state, and federal safety rules that must be followed. The FAA carefully regulates any unmanned aerial vehicles.

    Items to consider when selecting a pilot to take aerial photography

    • The UAV pilot should have a current pilot’s license and completed the training courses.
    • The pilot or company he/she works for has insurance coverage in the event of and accident or other legal matter.
    • The contract should protect you from any claims related to the project including: personal injury, privacy or property damage.
    • The pilots UAV should be registered with the FAA. Anything weighing more than 0.5 pounds must be registered with the FAA. If you fail to register the drone, you could be fined up to $25,000.
    • The drone cannot be flown within a 5-mile radius of an airport terminal.
    • Generally, a drone for commercial use cannot be flown at more than 400 feet in altitude. The pilot of the drone must maintain visual contact at all times.
