Drones in Construction

How to Use Drones to Streamline
Construction Management?

Use drones for your construction projects to enhance efficiency and safety in site inspections and project management.
Their aerial capabilities allow for detailed monitoring of construction progress and environmental impacts.

How Drones Help Construction Managers

Monitor Every Inch of Your Job Site: Drones offer a bird’s-eye view of your entire jobsite, capturing every detail. This ensures all stockpiles, materials, and work phases are thoroughly documented and monitored.
Progress Monitoring: With regular drone flights, track your project’s progress in real-time. Identify delays, monitor milestones, and make timely adjustments, keeping your project on schedule with accurate, current reports.
Inspections from Any Height: These aerial views allow for thorough risk assessments, ensuring your site’s safety and compliance.

What are the benefits of using drones?

Inspect with Ease: Zoom, pan, and rotate around the model to inspect progress from every angle.
Remote Management: Conduct remote measurements of distances, heights, and areas.
How does your actual progress stack up against the plan? Use BIM Compare for as-designed vs. onsite progress.
Easy Communication: Place annotations and tags directly on the model to highlight information for your team.

FAQs

This depends on how often you want the images updated.

A BIM Model is not necessary to create a Drone model, but if the client wants to integrate the BIM for the compare feature, then the BIM Model should be shared.

Our measuring tool has a margin of error of (+/-)5mm. Drone works entirely detached, and no architectural drawings or BIM is needed for distances or area measuring to work.

This depends on the site and height of tallest structure on site:

If it is a building site with no cranes, it is better to use 50m to 60m.
If there is a crane at 50-60m, then go 20m above it (around 80m to 90m).
Note: All photos need to be taken at the same height.

To improve the accuracy and quality of the model, we recommend using a 65° angle.

This depends on the site’s area, if it’s: Less than 30,000 m² ⇒ 100 to 250 photos. Between 30,000 m² and 60.000 m² ⇒ 250 to 400 photos. Between 60,000 m² and 100.000 m² ⇒ 400 to 600 photos. More than 100,000 m² ⇒ +600 photos.

Note: All photos should be taken in one mapping (multiple mappings gives bad results).

We usually recommend an evenly spread out flight path to get details in an equal pattern (like the image below).

A single flight at a fixed height is highly recommended. Different heights will cause processing issues and the flight might have to be redone.

It is okay to have a higher density of images around important structures on site, as long as the height is close to the altitude of the remaining bits of the flight.
