Construction Management

Drone solutions help manage every step of the construction process to moniter progress, reduce risks, and keep personnel safe.

Construction Management Key Benefits

Progress Monitoring

Drone solutions, along with image stitching and 3D modeling software help teams stay fully informed on site progress and resource allocation – keeping projects on time and on track.

Overhead Power Line Stringing

Heavy-lifter drones can carry cables to string power lines through complex geographies such as valleys or rivers.

As Built Condition

By documenting on-site data throughout a project life cycle, contractors can easily track changes and build as-built models that reflect changes in detail before accepting the final project.

Asset Digitization

Build high-definition 2D maps and 3D models of facilities and vertical structures using survey-grade drones, illustrating inspection results digitally.

Progress Monitoring

Traditional Challenges in Progress Monitoring

  • It is difficult to keep track of power line construction projects as they are often spread out, involving many teams.
  • Construction managers are unable to properly coordinate teams and ensure timely information delivery due to the physical distance between the site and the command center.
  • Fixed cameras onsite are unable to cover the entire site in detail, failing to capture critical progress information while creating many files that can be difficult to sort through.
  • Manually measuring construction earthwork is inefficient, producing results with low accuracy.
  • How Drones Help Monitor Progress

  • Drones provide complete site overviews and deliver accurate data on-demand, keeping personnel safe while improving efficiency throughout the project life cycle.
  • Drones are compact yet powerful, taking minutes to set up and can live stream footage back to the command center using DJI FlightHub, enabling timely information delivery and coordinated decision making.
  • Drone measurement data on earthwork and materials help accurately estimate workload and update project progress.

    Overhead Power Line Stringing

    Traditional Challenges in Stringing Overhead Power Lines

  • Setting up cables manually across rugged terrains like rivers and valleys can be challenging, dangerous, and time-consuming.
  • Helicopters can be used, although it is expensive, has restrictions on take-off locations, and can be dangerous to the operator.
  • How Drones String Power Lines

  • Drones can carry and string power lines across mountain ranges and rivers, while being able to take off and land in flexible locations and operate in high-altitude locations.
  • Drones can be controlled to operate precisely while following a set flight route through obstacles, enhancing flexibility and operational safety.
  • Drones are efficient and cost-effective, especially for remote regions.

    As Built Condition

    Traditional Challenges in As Built Plans

  • Verifying project details sometimes requires personnel to climb up pylons, which can be dangerous and time-consuming.
  • Without climbing onto the actual pylons, it can be hard to verify that all project requirements have been met based on ground observations alone.
  • Documentation done by different team members are not consolidated or even digitized, making it difficult to compile feedback or proceed to acceptance.
  • How Drones Enhance As Built Plans

  • Drones deliver complete inspection data on structures like transmission towers, covering multiple angles without missing any details.
  • Drones can be deployed quickly, saving time and labor while keeping personnel safe.

    Asset Digitization

    Traditional Challenges in Digitizing Assets

  • Traditional surveying equipment can be bulky, expensive, and difficult to maneuver in remote areas.
  • The learning curve on traditional surveying equipment is steep. Professionals are often hired to operate and analyze data, incurring additional costs.
  • How Drones Digitize Assets

  • Drones are portable and flexible, and can be opearted in remote areas such as in the mountains or in forests.
  • Drones are a lot more affordable than traditional surveying equipment, while being easier to operate and extract useful insights.
  • Drone data can be used to build survey-grade 2D and 3D models, providing crucial data for automated inspections and more.
