October 9, 2020

In the lead-up to DroneDeploy Conference 2020, we're highlighting some of our conference speaker's drone programs and the benefits they've seen through implementing DroneDeploy. Register for DroneDeploy Conference to hear more from Rogers-O'Brien and the latest about their program.

Even the most seasoned architecture, engineering, and construction firms struggle to avoid project delays and cost overages, while simultaneously improving operations. Effective communication and collaboration across teams is also crucial, with construction companies constantly in search of new, innovative ways to overcome such challenges. Rogers-O’Brien Construction (RO), a leading general contractor in Texas, found their competitive edge in the form of drone technology. By utilizing drones and DroneDeploy, the company saved time, increased efficiency, and avoided costly budget overruns.

Drone imagery has saved us thousands of man-hours in being more accurate across sites as we build.
