Drones In The Construction Industry

Aerial video is an effective tool for tracking project milestones, assessing contractor progress, managing your project and communicating with your team. We can offer our clients monthly, quarterly and annual reporting, providing full post production on stills and feature videos with quick and efficient turn around.

OffTheGround's services include:

Surveying & Inspections – In hard to reach places where access is difficult or impossible – eliminates the use of human risk and more eco friendly and economical than hiring out scaffolding, crane or helicopter. We can take hi resolution pictures or video and relay the images back to our ground station for you to see instantly.

Monitoring Job Sites to Ensure Safe Practices – Very often a client cant be at the site time and time again. With our drones we can keep a video and photo record of the construction site from the foundations to the finished project, allowing your client to see more than they would on the ground.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Using drones to undertake progress shots across a construction site allows closer access and is therefore a great tool that provides detail you will never achieve from a helicopter.

Safety - An "Unmanned Aerial Vehicle" is exactly that; unmanned. For all those hard to get to places, like the scaffolding on the top of your construction? Eliminate the risk and deploy the UAV. You can save time, minimise the personnel required and reduce the need for costly and dangerous plant equipment like Elevated Work Platforms (EWPs).

Marketing & Community Consultation - First impressions count! Create a positive buzz about your project using video or photos captured by a drone in place of a text filled flyer or information bulletin. Often this content can be an invaluable aid in marketing a project or for use in ongoing community consultation.

Minimise Progress & Schedule Disputes - Eliminate the need to argue about "what" happened on site by having detailed aerial shots so that you can focus on the "why", which is actually the real dispute at hand. Whilst site diaries and a progressively updated construction schedule play an important role, detailed progress shots taken from a drone are fast becoming another valuable tool in tracking and documenting progress.

Environmental Compliance - Erosion, sediment controls and revegetation captured from a bird's eye view can be an invaluable tool for both internal reporting and compliance with authority conditions. The added benefit to using UAVs is that it can minimise the need for timely inspections with authorities, which can be particularly costly for all concerned in remote locations.
