Today, Hansen Yuncken utilises DroneDeploy software on a remarkable 20 projects, communicating day-to-day activities, changing design plans, and regular site progress to a variety of subcontractors, owners, and other stakeholders. To best articulate the impact of drone data on company processes, Tom Cumming, Senior Project Manager, says, “Working with real-time data is effective, and allows us to do more than just indicative planning.”

Tom worked closely on the organisation’s Shepparton College project, a sprawling, detailed education building designed to hold over 2,700 students. This first-of-its-kind feat was the combination of three high schools in one, and the largest school the Victorian government had ever undertaken. Understandably, this was a heavily supervised, high-stakes project — which meant that Tom both managed and directed a twenty-one-person team of fellow project managers, site coordinators, and administrative staff. With that many eyes on the project, shifting client requests and varying design plans were the norm.
