Bid and Analyse More Accurately
Instead of using human resources, heavy machinery or expensive surveying tools, drone data analysis can do the work in half the time and with greater precision.
All good projects start with a quality estimate. Contractors are looking for different solutions that can help them be competitive, but sometimes estimators neglect these benefits when they have a limited perspective. Using drones can give estimators a different perspective on a project, so they increase the chances of bidding more accurately and competitively.
Reducing Sagfety Risks
Drones in the construction industry can do a great job above places that are too dangerous for a worker and can save lives by monitoring working conditions in more difficult areas. Without the use of a drone, let’s be honest, on some occasions, workers just can’t be able to verify a problem safely. This is especially true for contractors working outdoors.
With the use of a drone, it is possible to consult the data that can help minimize risks of a fall or to access areas in which a crane would tend to collide with obstacles. Accidents and injuries are the main elements that managers seek to prevent by using drones in the construction industry to improve worker safety.
In addition, by replacing aircraft or helicopters, for example, drones can perform missions with a smaller ecological footprint.
Boosting Business Development & Marketing Efforts
Marketing and sales for construction companies require the use of photos and images. Previously, obtaining aerial images required most contractors to hire an aerial photography company to take pictures of a project.
Another positive point, when customers live far from the workplace and can’t return to the construction site on a regular basis, drones can be an inventive way of demonstrating to customers the progress of construction or renovation. Also, they are a great way to give designers and architects an idea of what the project will ultimately look like.
Improved Project Management & Assessment
Less expensive than traditional aerial photos, drones are able to fly over a construction site, surround the area and take pictures at regular intervals at different angles.
Usually, data is better understood in a form graph than a text. In addition, construction projects are easier to plan and complete with aerial photos. For example, roofers can see how their projects are set up and how their teams work during projects. General contractors can analyze how their resources move throughout the construction site. Another interesting fact, better monitoring would allow to see an error more quickly and avoid additional costs to rectify it.
