Use of drones continues to grow in the construction industry as the use of drones becomes more accepted and and regulations governing drone operations continue to mature.

In the US, 2019 will be another big year for the commercial drone industry. 2018 saw a wider roll-out of the FAA’s LAANC (Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability) that provides access to controlled airspace near airports, the launch of the UAS Integration Pilot Program from the FAA, and other regulatory changes in Canada, the EU and India.

Once just the domain of racers and hobbyists, drones are also finding a growing market in the construction industry. Drones are becoming increasingly popular within the construction industry as more businesses begin to adopt the technology, so much so that their usage has increased 239% year on year according to a recent report by CNBC.

Adoption of aerial drones and drone technology is continuing to mature, especially in select industries like agriculture, construction, insurance, mining and aggregates, public safety, oil and gas, telecommunications, and utilities, according to reports in Forbes.

How are drones used in construction industry?

Construction firms are utilizing drones to save costs, improve efficiency and streamline projects. Drones can be used in a number of ways in the construction industry:

  • Mapping services
    Drones eliminate much of the human error involved in the process and have the ability to capture necessary data in much less time than traditional methods would take.
  • Remote monitoring and Improved Overall Security
    By capturing real-time data and generating reports, they can be used to quickly spot problems
  • Structural inspections and photography
    Drones can carry out real-time inspections of high risk areas so you don’t have to send people to them.
  • Transportation and Inspection
    Drones can take video and photographs that can be relayed back to a ground control system, allowing health and safety managers the chance to inspect a site without leaving their office.
