Absolutely thrilled that ProDroneWorx has been shortlisted in the “Best Use of Emerging Technology” category at the Building Innovation Awards 2019.
We've been shortlisted for our use of 2D and 3D survey grade accurate digital or reality capture outputs on a Readie Construction Ltd/Baytree Logistics Properties project.
The digital/reality capture outputs (3D point cloud/textured model, 2.5D digital surface model (DSM), 2D orthomosaic, 2D Google KMZ) created by a drone survey enabled both the developer and the contractor to improve the digital management of this large 15-acre asset, provided deeper data insights, better collaboration on the project, improved data deliverables to clients while reducing costs and risks.
A digital twin of this project was regularly created to keep pace with changes on site and brought the following benefits:
It helped surveyors, designers, project managers and senior management understand progress related to the design models.
It aided management of earthworks with cut-and-fill volumetric measurements.
Enabled progress monitoring of the project at all stages of the build and against the design models and progress month to month.
Facilitated quality assurance checks of the steel frame construction and integration of the high resolution imagery into BIM.
Gave evidence regarding the amount of work carried out.
Outputs were used within virtual reality (VR) and combined with BIM.
2D/3D reality capture outputs were integrated into existing workflow processes as the data was produced in various CAD, BIM and GIS formats, including dwg, dxf, xyz, las, laz, obj and e57.
