The Value of Drones in Construction

Arch Aerial’s Drone Services for Construction

Goldman Sachs recently released a report (click here for a link to the report) on the worldwide drone industry and at the top of the list for total addressable market is construction at just over $11B. That $11B is almost twice the amount that they have identified for the agriculture industry ($5.9B). While Arch Aerial LLC offers services to both industries, construction has been our bread and butter since day one. Today we offer several services for the construction industry:

Topographic Surveys: Arch Aerial’s Topographic Surveys are ideal for measuring cut and fill for a project and analyzing water flow over an area. Arch Aerial’s Topographic Surveys offer customers dense 3D point clouds that allow engineers to make more calculated decisions in a fraction of the time of traditional topographic surveys. The topographic surveys are also georeferenced to certified ground survey points so that the models achieve survey grade accuracy.

Inspection Surveys: Drones allow humans to achieve an aerial perspective for a fraction of the price of other aerial survey methods. Arch Aerial’s Inspection Surveys can be conducted in visual spectrum as well as IR/Thermal spectrum. Whether you need to inspect a building for energy efficiency analytics and/or identify issues in a place that is not easily reached by humans.  

Progress Photos and Videos: With Arch Aerial’s drone progress photos and videos, customers can capture stunning, high-definition images and video of projects. Customers can now take advantage of this media not only for reporting but to market their past and current projects.
