Meet Deadlines Safely &

EFFICIENTLY

Highly accurate data is crucial to the success of any engineering project. Every detail is essential to getting the project completed on time, safely, on budget and correctly. One inaccurate measurement could translate into expensive contract penalties. Drones allow engineers to inspect sites and collect the data and information that is needed to build models, check on safe practices, manage progress, and more.

APPLICATIONS

BIM

In just one flight, a professional drone can collect all the data required to generate a highly accurate 3D building model. This data can be collected more quickly than using terrestrial scanning equipment, plus the dataset is more global in nature (including colours, rooftops, external areas etc.), which enables BIM professionals to better and more quickly identify and react to problems.

Infrastructure

Drones are an excellent tool with which to map and inspect difficult-to-monitor linear assets such as pipelines, power lines, rail routes and waterways. Documenting such corridors with a drone is significantly quicker than traditional methods, generally safer and more accurate.

Inspection

The inspection of infrastructure such as bridges, dams, industrial structures and buildings has traditionally been time-consuming, expensive and often dangerous. Construction drones provide a uniquely efficient and safe method of inspecting such sites. Plus, their digital datasets are easy to collaborate on and compare over time.

Drones can reduce the time spent collecting accurate data. By acquiring data from the sky – in the form of geo-referenced digital aerial images, with resolutions as sharp as 1.5 cm (0.6 in) per pixel – you can gather millions of data points in one short flight.
With collection made so simple, you can focus your energy on using and analyzing data, rather than working out how to gather it.
Less time spent on the ground means staff safety is improved by minimizing risk to surveying teams when measuring sites such as mines, unstable slopes and transport routes. Simply choose take-off and landing locations that are out of harm’s way.
