Architecture, Engineering & Construction

Small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly called drones, are gaining in popularity not only among the general public and consumers but also among professionals working in the AEC industry.

Architectural projects stand to benefit from an aerial vantage point and thanks to drone technology, it is quicker and easier than ever to get an eye in the sky that is able to collect video, photos, and data that you can put to work on a project.

Drones can assist with activities such as site inspection, planning, and health and safety thanks to their ability to deliver a bird’s eye view of the entire construction area. In more detail, drones can be used to quickly and efficiently survey a job site and build maps; this service drastically reduces the need for human resources, heavy machinery, and expensive surveying tools, which means surveying projects are completed in half the time, with less money spent and with more accurate results.
