Drone Solutions for Construction
Create accurate estimations and better manage stakeholders with up-to-date visual data
Civil construction professionals are recognising the benefits of using drone data as a convenient and affordable way to improve their estimating, designing, progress tracking and reporting.
Having the full picture of your worksite at every stage of the project is critical for running an efficient construction operation. Propeller empowers your teams to capture their own topo surveys, much faster, cheaper and safer than using traditional methods.
The Propeller Platform’s flexibility means you can produce accurate estimates, generate cut and fill maps, modify plans to meet on-the-ground conditions using a web browser.
Free up your surveying teams to concentrate on more complex and higher value tasks and reduce your reliance on third party consultants. With a simple yet powerful browser app, you and your team can measure volume, grade and distance with a few clicks or compare site data against the design files.
Create a visual audit trail for tracking progress of your own or sub-contractors work to date. Frequent drone surveying, in combination with the Propeller Platform and AeroPoints smart ground control system, gives you centimeter-level accuracy for comparing multiple datasets over time.
Save time on site visits and focus on actually managing your projects. Propeller makes weekly and monthly reporting easy by offering easy-to-use tools for measuring, annotating and generating PDF or CSV reports to share with multiple contributors and stakeholders.
The demand for drone technology in the construction industry is increasing over the last few years. However we discovered that not every construction site and not every project stage can use drone data to its full potential. In this article we defined some real construction workflows that can be improved with drones and Propeller.
Civil contractors are among the earliest adopters of drone technology, and they admit that drone-captured data has given them a quicker, easier and safer way to produce digital terrain models and aerial sitemaps than the methods they used before.
“Our aerial data is not effective if it's not accurate. The use of AeroPoints allowed us to increase our accuracy of deliverables to our project team without inhibiting our traditional best practices and workflow to capture aerial documentation.”Grant Hagen Virtual Design and Construction Manager at The Beck Group
“Using Propeller's AeroPoints, we were able to efficiently, accurately, and effectively provide our data with ground control to produce higher quality results than what we thought was possible with traditional surveying equipment."Troy Fardell Director at RPAS Australia
