How to Use Drones in Construction & Engineering

Home > UAV Aerial Services Blog > How to Use Drones in Construction & Engineering

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, also known as UAVs or drones, are lightweight, remote-controlled aircraft that have been becoming increasingly popular in recent years. Recent decreases in manufacturing costs have made them more affordable, and as a result more and more people are finding ways to use them for a widening range of applications. One area where drones can make a big impact is in the fields of construction & engineering. We at Canadian UAV Solutions Inc. specialize in providing drones for these types of projects, and in this article, we’ll go over some of the many ways that drones can help with your next project.

  • Improve Quality – One of the ways that drones can make a big difference in construction & engineering ventures is that they allow you to perform more frequent and thorough inspections of the site while work is in progress. Rather than performing inspections in person, which takes time and often leaves hard-to-reach spots unchecked, you can look through a drone’s camera as it zips throughout the structure and reaches even the tightest corners. These more frequent and thorough check-ins will improve the final quality of your results.
  • Reduce Rework – Another benefit of using drones to inspect your project as it progresses is that you’ll be able to catch mistakes sooner and minimize the amount of rework that needs to be done. In the past, human error has left many issues uncaught, and leads to lengthy and costly rework efforts to correct them. With drones from our team at Canadian UAV Solutions Inc., you can get more eyes on your progress, more frequently, which will improve your ability to spot potential issues and correct them early.
  • Improve Safety – Safety is a concern on any construction effort. One reason that it’s difficult to conduct inspections in person is that there are often safety risks involved. With drones, you can get the comprehensive data you want without having to send workers into potentially unsafe areas.
