In general terms, this is dynamic imaging data that can be manipulated to view construction sites, bridges, buildings or any scene/area of interest from any angle, but it's more.
Modeling existing structures using aerial imagery and drones offers construction companies advantages and can accelerate project planning.
Integrating point clouds and aerial imagery into Autodesk, Navisworks, for example, allows a holistic review integrated models and data with stakeholders during preconstruction to better manage project outcomes.
The ability to assess existing conditions and scope projects correctly through the use of sophisticated model integration levels expectations among stakeholders, allow project managers to better assess cost and potential impedances and provides for a more accurate better time to completion estimates.
Why use video to market yourself within the construction industry? Because few are doing this and you will set yourself apart, better secure your position and grow! Local construction industries are tight-knit communities, expertise is often held by relatively few individuals or companies and in this way work often finds you. This is great when things are hopping, but what happens when things slow down?
Marketing is not about getting the next job it’s about growth and position. When things slow down and market share is restricted having an established presence can keep you near the top of the people’s minds for upcoming work.
Great aerial imaging using drone media in construction is only part of the solution but it’s a highly effective way to make your presence known and to keep your name front and center with your clients.
Images sell. Your marketing efforts will improve immensely when you add aerial photos to your website, social media accounts and brochures. Perhaps the most important is to show weekly or monthly progress updates to owners. Owners are normally very impressed by images based updates since they can see first hand what’s going. Aerial images make it easier to collaborate with all stakeholders and tackle specific issues because it’s easy to see what’s happening in an image or video without being on-site.
