Drone Technology: Revolution in Construction Industry

In every new decade, our world goes through revolutionary transformation with development of new technologies. We experience this change in technology in different ways and different aspects of our lifestyle. One of the latest revolutions in technology is Drone Technology. From IT services to Delivery Services to Military to Construction Industry, almost every building block of today's world is utilizing this technology. In fact, one of the most interesting and useful features of Drones in the Construction Industry is the productivity of drones for the whole process of construction.

From start to final touch, Drones are used to make sure the construction project is reliable and successful.

The Expanse of Drone Technology & Construction Industry

The Drone Technology is made up of several important technologies like Global Positioning System (GPS), Sensors and Infrared Cameras. These technologies when applied into an unmanned vehicle helps in developing elaborate plans for the projects by capturing detailed topography of the construction site and gives the construction workers a clear view of the work needed.

Two of the most heavily used and useful drones in the Construction Industry are Rotary and Fixed-wing Drone. These drones help in mapping, scanning, inspection and surveillance over the whole range of distances involved.

The Rotary Drone is the type of drone which is used for surveillance and thorough inspection of the structures constructed over smaller area and shorter distances. While the Fixed-wing Drone is the type which is used for mapping and topographical analysis of larger sites before the construction work starts.

Both the types of drones have unique features and high utility throughout the whole process of construction from planning to final touch.

Benefits of Drone Technology for Construction Industry

Comprehensive Study of the Site

Drones are extremely reliable to conduct elaborate survey of the construction sites and prevent any unforeseeable damage that might arise due to difficult topography. Drones can be relied on easily for mapping out the whole site so as to prevent losses and faulty construction layout. Drones are used to get high-resolution and clear pictures of construction process and the site.

It enables a risk-free work environment and a solid foundation to build the project.

Monitoring and Inspection

Construction companies are heavily relying on drones for monitoring the construction site and create a glitch-free work environment and ensure the safety of workers as well as prevent any loopholes in the structure. Equipment being used for construction can be easily tracked by drones. Usually, construction work involves usage of heavy construction equipment and vehicles which can be very tedious to manage.

This is where drones come in handy. They are extremely useful and require much lesser labour work. It also saves construction workers from any hazardous situation and ensures a healthy work environment.

Progress Management- Remotely

One of the biggest advantages of technological advancement of any kind is the massive saving of time that it enables. The Drone Technology also saves the construction companies a lot of time and labour work by enabling progress management, remotely. One can manage the progress of the project construction without the need to physically administer the construction site. This saves a lot of time and prevents any oversight that might lead to any colossal damage in the future.

With the present outlook of the utility of Drones, one can easily understand and foresee the advantages of embedding drones in the construction industry.

Alok Infracon, as a leading and reputed brand in the construction industry is ambitiously pursuing every new technological development and embedding futuristic approach in their process of creating construction marvels.
