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.
- Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
Have you ever wondered how some of the most stunning aerial images and footage of landscapes and events are captured? In the past, renting a helicopter or a plane, or hiring a film crew was the only way to get these shots. However, thanks to the invention of drones, capturing stunning aerial images and footage has become a lot easier.
Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), are small aircraft that can range from 5 to 20 inches in width and weigh up to 12 pounds. They are equipped with cameras and are becoming increasingly popular in various industries, including inspections, search and rescue, security, research, surveillance, and of course, aerial photography and videography.
One industry that has benefited greatly from the use of drones is construction. Drones are an ideal tool for documenting construction projects and can even replace the need for expensive machinery or human resources. Here are four ways in which drones can be used in construction:
- Site Surveying – Drones can quickly and easily capture high-quality images of a construction site, providing an accurate map of the area. This can be useful for project managers, architects and engineers to get a better understanding of the site before work begins.
- Construction Documentation – Drones can be used to document the construction process, from start to finish. This can be useful for keeping stakeholders informed and updated on the progress of the project.
- Safety Inspections – Drones can be used to inspect hard-to-reach areas of a construction site, such as roofs, without the need for human resources. This can help to identify potential hazards and improve overall safety on the site.
- Marketing and Promotion – Aerial footage captured by drones can be used for marketing and promotion purposes, showcasing the project to potential clients and investors.
In conclusion, drones have revolutionized the way construction projects are documented and managed. They offer an efficient, safe and cost-effective way to capture high-quality aerial footage and images, making them an ideal tool for the construction industry.
- 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!
