Drone photography: documentation and monitoring of construction sites
Detailed aerial photographs are in demand in both the private and commercial sectors. They fulfill a variety of tasks. One focus is on construction site documentation. Photos and videos capture progress on construction sites in razor-sharp detail. They bring to light actual conditions that are sometimes not in accordance with specifications. Drones are made for monitoring as well as documenting planning and construction phases. They do a great job on large-scale projects such as the construction of residential parks, factories and logistics centers. Developers and architects benefit from the wide range of applications.Contact us
Questions & answers about construction documentation with drones
Preservation of evidence: details matter
Preservation of evidence is also very important in the context of construction site documentation. It provides information on whether errors occurred during individual project phases or whether damage was caused to construction machinery, buildings and equipment by weather-related influences. In addition, it is often possible to assess whether safety regulations that can be seen from the air were implemented and adhered to. The photos and videos serve as a solid basis for asserting possible claims against insurance companies as well as other parties. They also support appraisers and experts in their work.
Orthophotos: revealing as if from a satellite
The production of orthophotos is also part of our service. These are distortion-free aerial photographs that show the entire area to scale. They also depict the topographical conditions. Numerous photos taken from a height of about 25 meters form a precise overall picture - comparable to satellite photos on Google Maps. Orthophotos have an accuracy of a few centimeters due to the high-performance cameras used. They skilfully exploit their advantages in the context of extensive route construction sites, such as road, rail, canal and bridge construction.
Bilddichte: the bull's eye in drone photography
Our drones make construction progress visually visible and comprehensible. They send aerial photos directly to the base station, and image and video material can be viewed live on request. If necessary, it is subsequently edited by our specialists. Within the scope of construction site documentation, our services include:
We bring construction sites into focus
Detecting weak points quickly: Drones equipped with cameras have a significant advantage. Unlike humans, who normally probe the situation, they move freely in space. Our equipment can be deployed without lengthy preparation and in a short time. Drones fly routes worked out in advance with precision. For large-scale projects, we also use GPS coordinates. Our drones convince through stable flight behavior, so that even on windy days there are no blurred recordings. This results in image and video material from positions that would otherwise be very costly and time-consuming. The expensive use of industrial climbers, scaffolding, cranes and helicopters becomes unnecessary. Drone flights are an efficient and cost-effective option to conventional visual inspection.
What is the cost of construction documentation with a drone?
With a suitable drone, even large construction projects can be documented quickly and cost-effectively and processed into the desired models with suitable software. We create an exact route that is flown and in areas that are difficult to see, we collect additional data in manual flight. Contact us and we will make you a non-binding offer for your construction project.
