Think back about 15 years ago. When someone brought up “drones” your mind would typically go straight to the military. Nowadays, the use of drones spans multiple industries and has even taken the recreational market by storm. While some may view them as toys, drones are meant to be so much more. For instance, drone usage in the construction industry has trended upward over the past few years. Not only is it increasing safety, the utilization of drones has expedited important tasks such as land surveying and site management. With new drone hardware and software being developed every day, more and more construction and engineering firms are making the switch. Below are some of the reasons why you should too.


Land Surveying


Records of Excavation


Stockpile Measurement


Planning and Design (3D models using photogrammetry)


Site Management (compare as-built in 2D and 3D compared to plans “as-design)


Infrastructure Inspection



Much like bulldozers and cranes, drones continue to prove their importance in construction. While drones necessary for efficient, yet accurate measurements can become costly (not to mention the insurance and certification required to even fly at a site), certified professionals can take control and ease both the financial and time burden associated with drones. At Znap Fly, our pilots are insured and certified (FAA Part 107) with 1000+ hours flown.
