As Australian cities become more densely populated, the construction industry is expanding at a significantly higher rate than ever before. Construction organisations now need to execute more complex architectural plans and naturally want to increase their competitive advantage in the market.
Leading construction projects are now benefiting from an aerial vantage point thanks to drone technology. It is now quicker and easier to get above a site and collect video, photos and data that can benefit a project.
In addition, construction managers can eliminate the need for human inspections by closely monitoring material stockpiles to ensure optimum supply levels.
Likewise, advanced drone technology and accurate imaging allows building inspectors to assess any building defects onsite or remotely using a desktop, again eliminating the need for large teams of workers that need to access walls and walk across scaffolding and rooftops.
How drones are proactively working in Australian construction
Small projects benefits
Small-scale projects can also benefit from a drone’s eye view. Securing a detailed measurements and land layout before construction begins can be invaluable.
Tender and capability benefits
Drones allow the creation of a catalogue of projects to demonstrate capability and potential as part of the sales and tendering process.
Not just a pretty picture!
Drone imaging goes well beyond just aerial pictures or videos. Accurate construction outputs and information can be gathered rapidly and be put to work on projects from the start.
