Look, it’s a bird! It’s a plane! No – neither 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 minimal – unless you were to rent a helicopter, a plane, or an entire film crew. The invention of the 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 footage for public or personal usage.

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

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

  • Monitor multiple sites

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

  • Presenting clients your progress

Clients can often not afford to visit the site frequently. Sending stock photos may not be the most effective way to show what progress has been made. Therefore, using drones is a good technique for covering all the areas that are in well-run progress and delivering 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? Previously, 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 much 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, 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:

  1. Site Surveying – Drones can quickly and easily capture high-quality images of a construction site, providing an accurate area map. This can be useful for project managers, architects and engineers to understand the place better before work begins.
  2. Construction Documentation – Drones can document the construction process from start to finish. This can be useful for keeping stakeholders informed and updated on the project’s progress.
  3. Safety Inspections – Drones can be used to inspect hard-to-reach construction site areas, such as roofs, without human resources. This can help to identify potential hazards and improve overall safety on the site.
  4. Marketing and Promotion – Aerial drone footage can be used to promote the project to potential clients and investors.

In conclusion, drones have revolutionized how 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 as 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 hazardous components on the site will be from above – with the help of a drone.

  • Keep the construction on track – and budget.

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