IMPORTANCE OF DRONES IN CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
Drones have led to significant changes in the construction industry. They have changed the way construction processes take place. They have not only made construction operations easier but also improved their productivity.
    Here are some of the major contributions of drones in the industry and their impact on the construction processes:

      Land Survey

        Drones are rapidly replacing the traditional methods of land surveillance. They have become so popular and are being adopted so rapidly that some people have even replaced the classic expression “bird’s eye view” with “drone’s eye view”. Drones have greatly reduced the time and labour involved in land surveying. They have also eliminated much of the human error in the process with their ability to capture necessary date accurately.

          Improved Infrastructure

            Drones have provided superior intelligence and endurance on worksites. With their ability to collect and report real-time data, drones have enabled the project teams to complete their work faster. They have removed the need for manual labour to perform this task. In future, drones will take over even more complex tasks involved large projects. They have the potential to cut the time and cost it takes to build skyscrapers by a huge margin. Contractors who use drones in their work will be able to make much more profits and deliver projects on time.

              Improved Communication and Management

                Drone technology has made instant communication and connectivity possible on work sites. They are being used to maintain constant contact at construction sites. Drones with mounted cameras can also provide with video footages to facilitate surveillance and communication. They have allowed companies to keep a watchful eye on the workers to ensure they’re working properly and safely. Due to all these benefits, drones have become an invaluable tool or investors and project managers.
                  Moreover, communication and management have seen significant improvement in efficiency to the ability of drones to collect real-time data. The time involved in gathering data has been considerably reduced due to the use of drones which has made worksite management easier and more efficient.

                    Improved Workers’ Safety

                      The use of drones in construction industry has led to a significant improvement in workers’ safety. Drones are being employed to constantly supervise the workers on site to ensure they’re working safely. In case of any risks, safety supervisors are able to take action on time before any mishap takes place. Drones have not only improved worker’s safety but also all over worksite security. The supervisors constantly monitor the construction sites to protect them from vandalism or theft. They also have the ability to survey dangerous locations safely and thus reduce worksite accidents. Manual surveys of these locations do not have to be conducted so worker’s safety is not at risk.

                        More Accurate Surveillance

                          Drones have the ability to capture everything at the same time. they not only reduce vandalism and theft and keep workers’ safe, but they also create a 24-hour real-time monitoring system. This monitoring system has been adopted by many construction companies and more and more companies are employing it with time. They elevate onsite safety and efficiency by a great margin. Drones have the ability to survey dangerous locations safely and thus reduce worksite accidents. Onsite inspection through drones drastically increases worksite safety and eliminates many safety hazards and dangers.

                            Better Transportation

                              The use of drones in aerial transportation of goods allows the companies to carry out difficult inspections and monitor everything that enter and leaves the worksite. It saves time and money keeps the job site secure. Since drones are smaller in size and highly manoeuvrable, they are being used an alternate to traditional vehicles. Another benefit of using drones for transportation is that they don’t have to follow the traffic laws. This saves a lot of time and resources, and allows the companies to deliver the goods in time.
