How are drones used for construction surveys and land surveys?

Construction companies and their contractors are the primary customers for drones and other remotely piloted aircraft in the United Kingdom, Nigeria and South Africa.

The biggest reason for adopting this new technology is because drones excel at gathering land data at a large scale and with high accuracy. They do it faster, safer, and with less manpower required than traditional land surveying methods.

This huge savings in time and money have now made drones a competitive advantage in construction locally. The larger the site, the bigger the benefits you get.

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are also prized in this industry because of their flexibility. All the data they gather by surveying project sites can be processed then used in a wide variety of ways. This includes reliable real-time maps and high resolution video and imagery to help streamline the process of construction planning.

What are the advantages of commercial UAVs to survey for construction and development?

Having reliable geospatial data is an essential step before starting a project, but the resources in time and manpower this requires can often slow down progress. Modern drones solve this problem and make it easier and more efficient to properly conduct a land survey for construction and development.

Here are a few of the major benefits drones give in real estate, roads & highways, energy, and other construction-related industries:

Reliable speed and performance on all terrain and environments
Unlike old survey methods, drones are not limited by challenging, unknown, or dangerous terrain. They can cover hard-to-reach slopes, active highways, and any other dangerous environment without putting staff at risk.

Fewer and smaller teams needed to survey large sites
A single commercial drone can cover 100 hectares to 200 hectares in a single day and collect large amounts of in-depth data. This means less manpower need to be allocated for surveys so you can keep your team focused on making progress on the actual construction.

Strengthen occupational safety for on-site staff
Drones ensure that workplace health and safety in your project site is not put at risk. They are controlled remotely from great distances which means high-risk areas like active highways and high slopes, as well as areas with heavy machinery can be surveyed and inspected safely.

Collect highly-accurate geo-data
Sensors equipped to UAVs and other remotely piloted aircraft are extremely sensitive and accurate when it comes to gathering data. Flights can be automated to ensure surveys are done consistently every time and get high quality data for contour lines, topographic maps, and other output.

How much does drone survey and land mapping cost?

The price of construction surveys and data analysis with UAVs depend on multiple factors including:

  • Size of the area to be surveyed (square meters/kilometers)
  • Complexity of maps and models required
  • Time frame on when output needs to be delivered

All drone services are highly flexible in duration, coverage, and data type and can be designed to meet any specific requirement. If you would like a detailed estimate of how much it would cost to map your project site, simply send us a message and we will send you a free quote.
