Leveraging Drones in Construction

Last week we hosted a great group of General Contractors from Southwest Missouri who were interested in deploying drones on their jobsites.  We discussed everything from drone safety, current drone regulations, spotting hazards with drones and even using UAV's for topographical surveys.  Many had questions about this emerging technology and how they could use UAV's to save money by showing jobsite progression pictures and making sure all of their subs were on the same page.  One specific topic dealt with stormwater management and how best practices could be documented by taking still images of outflow boundaries.  By documenting the jobsites critical areas, the GC was able to show that all storm water run-off was being handled properly.  We are excited to have presented to such a great group of individuals and look forward to serving them on their upcoming projects.
