1. Planning Complex Projects
Accurately surveying your job site or project requires a tremendous amount of work. Whether it’s grading the land or evaluating site conditions, anything to help streamline the project planning process and shave weeks off of the project can end up saving significant amounts of money.
DroneDeploy software simplifies project planning through its aerial site intelligence capabilities. Tracking the progress of any construction project from start to finish, drones use aerial imagery to create real-time maps through which managers can inspect locations and make proactive decisions via actionable data.
2. Mitigating Dangerous Conditions
In the world of construction, nothing is more paramount than the safety of the workers with boots on the ground. Weather conditions, natural disasters or other hazardous conditions can get in the way of construction, impeding progress and potentially putting the construction crew at risk.
Drones equipped with live maps make it possible to accurately assess the real-time conditions for workers on any construction site. By surveying the site from a bird’s-eye view, construction crews will be able to proactively address any potential risks and keep danger at arm’s length.
3. Edging Over Glacier-like Technology
Construction tools of the past may have had access to limited technology that made it somewhat easier to assess, plan and execute projects, but many legacy solutions often required extra steps or access points to recover information. Downloading gigabytes of data from an SD card or over a weak internet connection could take hours or days — before the data could even be used for anything.
