How To Optimize Job Site Productivity with Aerial Drone
OSDC is using UAV surveying techniques such as Photogrammetry and LiDAR in a big way on heavy civil sites construction sites throughout BC. As construction projects become more complex, rapid and precise data capture and analysis are essential to successful project completion. Drone aerial mapping provides near real-time data allowing clients to rapidly make informed decisions on the fly that drive productivity, efficiency, and profits like never seen before. Drone imagery and video on construction sites are also reliable solutions for documenting the progress of these large-scale projects from start to finish via volumetric and progress surveying, ensuring contractors are getting paid for every bit of material they have moved.
By leveraging this technology, field-level workers, engineers, and senior executives can streamline processes, ensuring accuracy in each stage of development and gaining valuable insight into potential issues before they arise. In this article, we’ll provide an overview of drone aerial mapping processes and discuss important planning considerations when utilizing drone technology for volumetric reporting and generating critical real-time site surface model information. This information will ensure that heavy civil sites are being run as efficiently as possible, with the ability to make informed decisions that drive productivity, efficiency, and profits like never before.
