Development & Design

Using drones in the up-front stages of a construction project scope is a powerful tool for land developers to identify opportunities and uncover pitfalls. This can be done at a fraction of the cost of traditional means such as land survey or plane photography. Drone survey is very flexible in terms of parcel size, topographical features, and urban/rural environments. In the project feasibility stage, inexpensive aerial imagery can provide a detailed ortho-mosaic map of hundred-acre parcels, with GPS accuracy. Survey results are quick – usually just a few days – helping to select the best parcels, attract investors, approve funding, and negotiate land purchases.

Photogramic survey & Map

As planning evolves, a drone map can provide centimeter-level accuracy that can be overlaid over topographic contour lines, plans, and 3D models. As a result, this is an invaluable tool  to zoning boards and inspectors, architects, engineers, and construction and landscape firms. Furthermore, aerial photography is a powerful marketing tool to attract potential tenants and investors, with 360-degree visualizations of neighborhoods or cityscapes from each floor.

Site management

During project construction, drones bring a key value with the ability to fly the same mission over and over, so project build-out can be displayed with high-resolution imagery over time. This is an important tool for many constituents; construction management can update clients; planners can easily manage site layout and raw materials; municipalities can keep their residents informed.

On the job site, drone data is used to quickly and accurately measure bulk material volume and linear measurements. Results can be integrated into 3D models and layered mapping. They can be used to inspect hard-to-reach areas and mitigate rework. Video can be used when reaching milestones or on owner walk thru to view hard to reach areas

At Aerial Technology Service, job site safety and security are our number one concern. Our pilots hold FAA part 107 licenses and are OSHA 30 (construction) certified. We strictly follow FAA 107 rules and will apply for waivers as the site requires. We follow all onsite safety protocols and emergency procedures.
