All About The Data
Drones can be used to provide data to prevent common construction mistakes in activities like site balancing, concrete layout, quantity tracking, fulfillment verification, and schedule tracking – all with real time data collection. Although some drones can handle more advanced jobs like thermal photography and mapping, most drone work in construction today is for aerial site photographs, replacing the need to hire an expensive plane and pilot.
There are even companies that will provide drone services for construction, such as Precision Hawk, so that your company doesn’t have to maintain drone equipment or train someone to be a pilot. If you would prefer to have your own equipment and trained pilots, you can send your staff to a school like Drone Pilot Ground School to learn to fly and get their 107 license to fly from the Federal Aviation Administration.
