Construction Drone Services
Drones provide access to mapping and imaging data faster than ever before. With our construction drone video and mapping services, data is collected faster, cheaper and safer. As a result, the industry is benefiting from better decision making based on accurate, real-time drone data. Measuring earthworks and estimating hauling costs are important for any project. We collect data, create surface maps, and track the progress of your build, so you can focus on the heavy lifting.
Without accurate volume calculations, it can be difficult for earthwork contractors to understand site conditions and plan their earthwork costs accordingly when preparing a bid. We can fly over prospective job sites getting volume measurements in a matter of minutes. This helps quickly and affordably determine grading calculations and create an accurate cut and fill analyses—and show these deliverables to the client—without having to spend the time or money involved in surveying the site with traditional methods.
Drones make it easy—and affordable—to create point clouds and orthomosaics that reflect the actual conditions of the site and its features. This can especially make the difference on BIM-mandated projects: by turning a point cloud into a Revit model, for example, you can prove to prospective clients that your firm is BIM-ready while still in the bidding process. Coming to the table having already captured the project with a drone—and turning it into actionable data—helps put you one step ahead of the competition.
Track Progress From The Sky
Drones—with their unique aerial view and high-resolution imagery—have become as a key tool to make progress updates simple, affordable, and fast. You can fly your project daily, weekly, monthly, for example, process the images into orthomosaics and 3D models, and share them with your client with the click of a button. This is a major differentiator in the bidding process: for clients that are looking for this level of insight into their projects, being able to offer regular progress updates can help set you apart from the competition.
