ProDroneWorx were one of the finalists at the Building Innovation Awards 2019 in the “Best Use of Emerging Technology” category for the use of drone technology for drone surveys and drone inspections. We were shortlisted for our use of 2D and 3D survey grade accurate digital or reality capture outputs from our drone surveys on a Readie Construction Ltd/Baytree Logistics Properties project. We didn’t win on the night but it was great to be selected. The use of reality capture
Whether it's on top of an existing blocks of flats, commercial properties such as office blocks, shopping centres, or warehouses, the potential scale of ‘rooftop development’ is enormous. Knight Frank estimates that 40,000 homes could be built on top of existing buildings in central London alone. Homes England have also provided funding to encourage this type of rooftop development. Using the 2D/3D digital outputs from a drone survey can significantly aid the design and plann
Looking forward to presenting at Digital Construction Week on Thursday from 12.30pm to 1pm in the Geospatial Theatre. I will be presenting on how the use of survey grade accurate 2D/3D digital data using drone technology is being used for land buying/assessments, surveying, earthworks, planning proposals, progress monitoring, project design, asset inspections, 3D animation/augmented reality and scan to BIM/REVIT modelling. If you're at the event come over any say hello.
Good coverage of our article in BIM+ about how the digital outputs from drone technology are being used for planning, maintenance, inspection, management and surveying of assets. Drone technology, cameras and data processing have come a long way over the last few years and are now a creditable alternative to the traditional ways of assessing assets by building surveyors or facilities management firms. RICS recently published a report on this subject for its members highlighti
We were recently engaged by a client to produce survey grade accurate 2D/3D digital or reality capture data to de-risk a project at tender stage. They want to fully understand the topography of the site and calculate the volume of hazardous material. Without accurately knowing the amount of material to be removed from site a profit could easily turn into a loss. We all know that the average margin within the construction industry is small and it only takes a few small mistake
