October 15th Chapter Meeting

Use of UAV’s in the A/E/C Industry
The A/E/C industry has relied on aerial images for a very long time. Now, with UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) camera rigs, the progress of your construction project can be documented for a fraction of the cost of traditional aerial media. Video documentation of each phase of the project offers detail and history of the job site not possible with static aerial photographs. This allows for easy collaboration between owners, architects, engineers and construction managers - ensuring progression and design quality. Owners and A/E firms, together with construction companies benefit by having a “living” timeline of their work. This helps with planning future renovations and conveying competence to prospective clients. Applications include preconstruction site photos, construction documentation, building inspection, real estate sales, insurance claims and more!
