Why Drones Are Becoming a Big Deal


Drones have become a big, big deal over the last few years.

We are seeing them everywhere in the forms of new, high-gadget toys for our kids to use by the military.

But the application of drones for the building and construction industry is also growing at a rapid pace. A recent report from Business Wire states that the global demand for drones in the real estate and construction industry will reach a cumulative market value of $20.5 billion.

The application of drones in our industry can extend to:

  • Marketing: aerial photos of your office, job sites, or for use in presentations
  • Construction: real-time photos taken every day of your construction site as it’s being completed
  • Architecture: as-built design comparisons to insure design intent
  • Engineering: safely explore difficult-to-reach areas, such as bridges, large facilities, and roadways
  • Agriculture: Assess your current and future production
