Drone Data in Construction

During construction launches, having a drone monitor progress on a daily basis ensures on-site situational awareness, so that management and project teams are aware of real-time advancements, setbacks, and potential risks, allowing them to make informed decisions based on a comprehensive set of tracking data.

Aerial data collected by drones is also used to document project progress, make comparisons to design plans, and later generate as-built drawings. Gary Pille, Project Executive of Dickies Arena,  “Using the drones has enabled our superintendents to view the installation of piers, utilities, underground MEP, etc., and compare to contract CDs, which means image overlay on design plans on a daily basis… and allows us to detect any layout / routing deficiencies much sooner than before.”
