A contractor may not have thought about it before, but there are at least four good benefits in using a drone on a construction site. Not only are drones light weight and cost effective, but they offer a versatility to give the project manager exactly what they need.
Let’s expand on four main benefits drone photography and videography can be put to use on-site:
4 Reasons Construction Sites Need Drones
Monitor Job Sites:
Construction sites always have a strong sense of urgency about them. It’s the project manager’s position to keep the pre-construction and construction schedule on time, to work fast, efficiently, and to keep the client happy. With so many pieces to the puzzle, it can be hard to catch everything going on. That’s where drone photography comes into play. Construction sites change daily, with aerial photography and videography the project manager can track the daily progression while storing the visual history. Drone footage can keep tabs on materials at the site, equipment, along with temporary roads and structures.
Due to a construction site’s size and structure it can be difficult to see tight and high spaces. Drones can fly in difficult spaces that are hard for individuals to get to and can cover vast spaces quickly and efficiently.
Drone Inspection Applications:
- New building Construction
- Building Additions
- Pipeline Processing
- Wind Turbines
- Monument Inspections
It goes without saying that drones offer a perspective that hasn’t been available to most businesses before. Drone photography and videography can now be used to present your business to customers to advertise their brand on a whole new level. Imagine being able to show potential clients and investors the construction services you provide. Having a video highlighting a job site from the ground up, showing your professionalism, and timeliness can speak volumes and give you the edge over your competition.
Using drones for insurance surveys can be a blog in and of itself. Living in Oklahoma, we see our fair share of natural disasters. Downbursts, tornadoes, flooding, earthquakes, you name it Oklahoma has it all (#quakenadoes and #tigernadoes, need we say more?) Drone photography can be used in a multitude of construction insurance applications:
- Crop insurance claims
- Hail damage
- Natural disasters
Drones can record assets before a disaster hits and will be there for you during the claims process after.
