20+ DRONE USES IN CONSTRUCTION

Here is a breakdown of all the drone uses in the construction space for every stage of the construction process. From progress photos to stockpile measurements, drones are transforming how people manage construction job sites.

Site Selection

Rather than looking at outdated google maps, have one of our pilots fly a prospective site TODAY for the most updated view of the property. For example, we can fly at different altitudes to give you a bird’s eye view of what your future tenants would see out each floors window. https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/279872464

Legal Protection

Before the first piece of equipment arrives at the jobsite, have Drone Brothers capture a base map of the job site AND all roads surrounding the site.This way, your company has a date and time stamped map of the current road conditions and can never be blamed by the City, County or State, for damages that were already existing on their roads.

ZONING MEETINGS

Rather than waiting for the zoning board to send someone out to visit your site, be proactive and bring the site to them. Drone videos and maps will make everyone's job easier. Its all about saving time, money and speeding up the approval process. https://vimeo.com/281729704

Site Plan Overlay

This is what we call a Game Changer! We can import your site plan as a separate layer in our drone maps or we can export our contour maps for use in your CAD system. Overlay drone maps with site plans such as utility, wastewater, and equipment clearances. Compare real time site conditions against plans. Catch conflicts early and redirect them at minimal cost. https://bit.ly/3SNS1Wo

Golden Shovel Ceremony

Drones make for a great tool to capture your team, your client and local government official with their hard hats and shovels for the groundbreaking ceremony.Our editing team can create videos to use in all your social media efforts.

Progress Visuals

Our pilots can capture progress photos, panoramas, videos and maps to share with your team, subs, city and most importantly you clients at their weekly reporting meetings. https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/708057643

360 Rendering Video

With today’s A.I and advances in video editing software, we can provide drone footage of empty land and overlay a 360 model of your new building as if it already exists.This is an outstanding tool to help WOW your prospects or customers and give them a view of their finished building without moving a single piece of dirt. https://vimeo.com/732154517/31883d1302

Cut Fill Analysis

Drones are an idea tool for calculating earth work.Our team can help with Cut-Fill analysis to help you save considerable time and money.

Stockpile Volumetrics

Is that pile of crushed concrete really 800 Cubic yards?How many truckloads will be needed to haul this material away?Rather than waiting for weeks for your stockpile data, our drones can capture and accurately measure this information within hours and at a fraction of the cost of surveying.

Milestones

Drones are an outstanding tool to capture various milestones of your project; Footings placed, wall tilts, cement pours, roof placement, top off ceremonies and more. https://vimeo.com/694066148 

Facade & Roof Inspection

Investigation, documentation, and quantification of existing conditions. The results of an aerial inspection give our clients the tools to present a more fully developed scope of work for budgeting, phasing, scheduling, and bidding for repair and maintenance work. Greatly reducing their traditional inspection costs while maintaining a safer work environment.

Interior Captures

We capture interiors with a drone fly through; great for large scale warehouse type projects (100,000’+) as well as more detailed FPV (First Person View) tour using a high-definition video camera that broadcasts live footage back to the pilot on the ground.

360 Interior Captures

Thanks to our nationwide partnership with Cupix, once the roof goes up on your project, our team can do a complete walk through with our 360-degree cameras, delivering incredible detail utilizing the world’s most flexible and easiest-to-deploy 3D digital twin platform.

System Training Videos

With our NATIONWIDE team of videographers, we can help capture and produce system training videos for you to hand over to the new owners.HVAC operations, Fire Suppression systems, Alarm operations, etc. https://vimeopro.com/dronebros/amazon-training 

"As Built" vs "As Designed"

One of the most striking advantages of accurate site visualization is the ability to overlay the original CAD on a current photo. This allows you to compare what was built with the plan and make sure they fit together. Site managers can then identify differences between planned and real-time progress and finalize projects accordingly.

DOCUMENTATION & LEGAL PROTECTION

Document the condition of the job site (and roads leading to the site) before you get started. By creating a map or doing a video flyover, we can document the conditions of the roads before your trucks and heavy equipment show up.

REAL-TIME JOBSITE MONITORING

Think of these as Google Maps on steroids. Up to the minute, high-resolution maps of your job-site for better site monitoring and overall site management.

INTEGRATE WITH TECH

Import your most up-to-date site plan to your drone map, to compare designs to reality. Export drone maps as 3D point clouds that integrate nicely with AutoCAD or any other CAD software.
