How Drone Technology is Changing Construction Work

Learn how the development of drone technology is changing the construction industry.

It’s no secret that drone technology has rapidly evolved in recent years.  Once only used for military purposes, drones are now being sold and operated for personal use.  Naturally, drones are now also being used in a variety of professional fields such as the construction industry.  Here are some of the ways in which drone technology is changing the construction industry.

  • Surveying

Drones are commonly used to survey job sites before a build takes place.  Using drones to complete this step saves money because it eliminates the need for expensive surveying tools and it also saves time because it streamlines data collection.  Finally, using drones to survey an area is also more accurate because it eliminates the risk of human error.

  • Monitoring

When you run a contracting company or are the person overseeing a build, it is difficult to consistently monitor the job site.  However, drones offer a solution to this issue by allowing you to monitor the entirety of the site remotely.  This allows you to ensure that the workers are being productive and can also help you prevent instances of loss and theft at your site.

  • Inspecting

Finally, drones can also be used to inspect completed structures.  Rather than having to lug heavy equipment to the site and call in inspectors, drones can be used to assess the sturdiness of a structure.  Additionally, drones can be used to periodically survey workers to ensure that they are following proper construction techniques.

These are some of the ways in which drone technology is changing the construction industry.  Are you looking for more advice and innovations for your next building project?  Then turn to the experts at Proforma Construction.  Serving Pleasanton and the surrounding California area, our highly-trained team is ready to make your commercial construction dreams a reality.  Contact us to get started today.
