Look, it’s a bird! It’s a plane! No – neither of the two describes the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that can range from 5 to 20 inches in width and weigh up to 12 pounds – drone!

In the past, shooting aerial images had been very limited – unless you were to rent a helicopter, a plane, or an entire film crew. The invention of a camera mounted on a drone signifies a new era of shooting landscape footage.

Drones can be applied in various areas – inspections, search, security, research, surveillance, aerial photography, videography and documentation. In any of these cases, drones can fly over the places that a photographer under usual conditions wouldn’t be able to reach. It can film all sorts of events and can thus provide informative footages for public or personal usage.

Operating with drones during construction documentation also replaces employing human resources or pricey machinery.

Read through the 4 ways on how drones can be used if you are launching a construction-building project!

  • Monitor multiple sites

When having to shuttle between various building sites and properties, using a drone to observe progress and appropriate safety standards can save you a lot of time, money and energy!

  • Presenting clients your progress

Clients can often not afford visiting the site on a frequent basis. Sending common photos may not be the most effective way to show what progress has been made. Therefore, using drones is a good technique of covering all the areas that are in well-run progress and showing these to your client.

  • Improved safety records

As much of a miracle the human eye is, it can often be difficult to detect possible safety hazards from the ground of a construction site. A better position to locate unstable components on the site will be from above – with the help of a drone.

  • Keep the construction on track – and on budget

When deciding to use a drone during the course of your construction, you are trying to keep costs low where you can. You will be able to identify which areas of construction are off-track, solve occurring issues quickly and there be better prepared avoiding any extra working hours and costs!
