Drones in Construction: The Sky is the Limit

Based on our presence at the Commercial UAV Expo in Amsterdam, it seems the construction industry in Europe and beyond is embracing UAV technology to aid their works.

UAVs for construction have proven to be especially useful for different stages in the lifecycle of a project. This is due to a growing number of tasks/features UAVs can effectively take care of, such as:

-HSEQ Compliance

-Subcontractor Compliance

-Vegetation & Topology Surveys

-Volumetric Data

-Survey-Grade LiDAR (Point Cloud)

-Constant Site overview

-Logistics overview

-Backlog of project data

As Skylogic Research, LLC / Drone Analyst study shows, most commercial drone use globally is currently related to construction. See the breakdown below.
