The Building Industry are now using Drone Technology - Here's how it works.

Updated: Jan 18, 2023



Drones have been revolutionising the building industry in recent years, and their use in monitoring construction sites is one of the most significant ways they are being utilised. Drones are providing construction companies with a cost-effective and efficient way to monitor progress, identify potential issues, and ensure safety on construction sites.


One of the primary ways drones are being used in the building industry is for site surveying and mapping. Drones can quickly and easily capture high-resolution images and videos of a construction site, providing detailed information on the progress of a project. This information can be used to identify potential issues, such as structural problems or safety hazards, and to track progress over time.


Drones are also being used to inspect structures and equipment. For example, NOOK homes based in Auckland have a growing fan base on Waiheke and needed to record the delivery and installation of their buildings on site. Today Waiheke Aerial Photography films all the deliveries to the Island. This content can also be utilised to create compelling social media posts.


Another important use of drones in the building industry is for safety monitoring. Drones can be used to monitor construction sites for safety hazards and to ensure that workers are following safety protocols. For example, drones can be used to monitor workers to ensure they are wearing personal protective equipment or to check that heavy equipment is being operated safely.


In addition, drones are also being used to document construction sites. They can capture images and videos of the site, which can be used to create virtual tours or visual progress reports. This allows stakeholders to view the progress of the project without needing to be on-site, saving time and resources.


In conclusion, drones are increasingly being used in the building industry to monitor construction sites, improve safety, and increase efficiency. By providing detailed information, they are helping construction companies to identify potential issues and track progress, while also reducing the need for manual inspections and increasing safety for workers. As the use of drones in construction continues to evolve, it is clear that they will play an increasingly important role in the building industry in the future.
