UAV’s have come a long way within the construction industry, especially with dedicated equipment using onboard RTK technology. This means it is now not just speed that is a big advantage, but also accuracy, especially when combined with a ground control station.
UAV’s are changing the way that construction companies work. We can offer a range of solutions to support your management and department teams, as well as improving mitigations of health and safety onsite.
Drones are piloted remotely, and this is essential when surveying sites where it is too risky to send people. In quarries, for example, surveying requires people to move around rocky and uneven surfaces that can put people in danger. Some sites also have dangerous structures or hazardous and flammable materials on-site that workers should not be in close proximity to. Instead of sending out engineers with pegs, operators can stay at a safe distance and easily fly the drone over the area to collect data, saving the surveyor time and minimising risk in the process.
We can offer various solutions with standard or RTK equipment including:
Initial site survey and measurement
Volumetric stockpile measuring
Construction mapping and 3D modelling
Reaching inaccessible or unsafe areas, for survey and safety monitoring purposes
