The benefits of using drones in construction

“Drones have successfully been used to provide an objective view of a site’s development, which is particularly useful when disputes arise regarding a timescale not being met.” – Skycatch.

Some other common benefits of using a drone on a site include:

  • Inspection of hard to reach structures
  • Safety and workflow surveys
  • Digital photography and documentation
  • Monitoring environmental factors
  • Monitoring and improving worker safety

It is clear that using drones has many advantages not least where traditional systems such as ladders, scaffolding or abseiling have a much greater risk.
