The Viability of Drones in Construction

The Viability of Drones in ConstructionDrones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are utilised extensively within the infrastructure and construction industry for a number of different reasons. Drones are used primarily to take advantage of their ability to fly freely within any three-dimensional space, providing builders with a number of applications that were once expensive and impractical to implement.

Quadcopters are the most popular form of drone in use today, due to their durability and low cost. Propelled by four, manually shifting rotors, quadcopters are incredibly nimble and can move quickly within the air. Quadcopters are considered cheaper and more durable than conventional helicopters, as well as being safer due to their smaller blades which possess less kinetic energy.

Drone technology is used for a variety of different applications within the construction industry, especially for use in aerial photography. This is because drones can reach incredible heights within the sky, reaching more than 100 metres above ground in typical use cases. These are heights which are inaccessible from people without expensive manned solutions. This footage can be used for marketing collateral, to showcase a construction with an array of beautiful images and grand perspectives.
