UAVs are starting to dominate all the 4 stages of architectural engineering, namely; preconstruction stage, construction stage, post construction stage and the ongoing safety maintenance stage.
Drones can be used for:
– Land survey and site inspection during pre-construction stage
– Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Point cloud scanning
– Marketing and promotional photography during and after construction
– Monitoring and tracking onsite activities thereby ensuring accurate workflow
– Ensuring routine asset inspections and safety measures at all times
Garuda Robotics Academy is conducting our next Professional Multirotor Pilot Course from 2-6 October 2017.
Regardless of whether you’re just getting started with UAVs, or aiming to upgrade your skills so you can join the industry as a professional UAV pilot, this course will get you prepared. Learn from the professionals – our instructors are operationally-ready UAV pilots who regularly carry out UAV services across Southeast Asia. We will train you to fly safely, effectively and reliably so you can get the job done.

How can drone be deployed to effectively monitor on site activities to ensure an efficient work flow can be a big topic.
Having an efficient work flow can be a result of good coordination, good planning and a lot more. Having a monitoring system will be good but how an immediate response plan if the original plan fails to materialise is even more important.
Many a time we see construction projects fall into a standstill due to technical issues, costly reworks that put stress onto the financial burden of the contractors, main con and subcons, either due to change in design intent or lack of construction info etc reasons.
And in most cases contractors stand to lose as its their fault for not being able to spot, highlight or counter propose a solution.
Why cant these design grey areas be cleared off in earlier stage of the project or before even the project is awarded, during the design phases?
Is there a centralized system that track the technical issues hindering progress and development?
I would think that with modern technology, a simply CMS portal would be an efficient solution to keep track of RFI, RFA, design issues, progress, manpower deployment, materials schedules and issue of tender drawings and amendment drawings etc etc.
It can be a portal for different end users of different roles to take charge of data entry and centralized dissemination.
It’s like we do Facebook, Twitter and Instagram every waking hours and we dont find it troublesome
