FORT LAUDERDALE, FL • ASHEVILLE, NC
Technology Poised to Disrupt the Construction Industry

Construction projects are complicated, time-consuming and resource-intensive projects.

SkyData UAV's aerial technology helps you to improve your project. You already use design and project management software to create, plan, track and measure construction progress. By adding SkyData UAV drones to your workflow, we deliver a bird’s eye view of your project, as well as files that integrate with CAD software to help you measure as-designed against as-built.

SkyData UAV can quickly conduct and aerial survey your job site and build maps in less than half the time and cost, and with greater safety and accuracy than people on the ground or from a manned aircraft.


SkyData UAV makes aerial surveys much easier by collecting data for you so that you can focus your energy on putting data to use and more effectively managing your project.


Why even consider using drones to periodically deliver images and data of your construction site?

  • Projects are ever more complex and larger in scale.
  • The growing demand for environmentally sensitive construction means traditional practices must change.
  • The shortage of skilled labor and supervisory staff will only get worse.

FIVE TRENDS THAT WILL SHAPE CONSTRUCTION

AND CAPITAL PROJECTS

SKYDATA UAV DELIVERABLES

  • Georeferenced cut and fill and earthwork hauling specifications.
  • Asset management, including materials, equipment, temporary roads and structures.
  • Stockpile volumes for labor and time estimates to move/remove.
  • Egress and on-site logistics for vehicles and heavy machinery
  • Quality control (plan vs. actual).
  • Regulatory compliance information and progress reporting.


ANALYZING THE DATA AND IMAGES

With our browser-based 3D models, you can simply share links with other project managers to view the construction’s progress, as well as export data files to architects and engineers for construction progress verification. With 3D models you have an orbital view of the entire site, where they can see important variations in the dirt patterns that show where varying levels of progress are working as anticipated, or are running into issues.

THE BENEFITS OF UAV CONSTRUCTION SITE MONITORING


  • Compare the model of the existing site with the design file.
  • Show elevation variations in the design plans.
  • 3D models give you visual information and data about the earthwork on a site within 24 hours after flying, versus the days that it would take a survey team to shoot elevations. Even then, ground survey shots cannot accurately show spoil patches, trenches, and the detailed contours across the job site.
  • SkyData UAV images are a practical and cost-effective way to show clients the progress of building, renovation or inspection – and from a standpoint that cannot be seen from the ground.


MONITORING JOB SITES


  • Save time and cost by having SkyData UAV fly job sites for you instead of shuttling between sites to monitor progress.
  • Track subcontractor progress and productivity.
  • Observe utilization and location of owned and rented earthmoving, aerial, material handling and small equipment.
  • Track construction phases, equipment locations, and perimeter security such as fencing to identify where projects are getting congested, and for hazard prediction.
  • Use SkyData UAV drones to hover over areas that are too dangerous for workers to access, potentially saving lives by monitoring workplace conditions in areas that are very hard to reach.


KEEPING THE PROJECT ON TRACK AND ON BUDGET

By identifying the project phases that are out of sequence, having the ability to prevent any causalities, and rigorously monitoring your job sites you will be prepared to remove any additions to project time and cost.

Real-time control is oftentimes impractical and costly, particularly when managing multiple projects at the same time. With SkyData UAV, we provide you with near-real time images and data about your project so that you can make informed decisions more quickly.

UAVs fly lower and closer to construction sites than traditional aircraft and provide more detailed information that ranges from capturing pictures and video for periodic progress reports to creating site survey maps that provide a foundation for work plans.


Orthomosaics used in periodic progress reports provide highly accurate and detailed images for monitoring changes, helping you to identify potential issues and prevent performance delays.
