CAGC Virtual Lunch and Learn - 9/13/2023:

Dr. Joseph Burgett, Clemson University: Drones in Construction: More Than Just a Pretty Picture

Over the past few years, the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems, commonly referred to as “drones,” has significantly increased in the construction industry. What started as a novelty toy to capture marketing images has become an invaluable tool for improving logistics, reducing costs, and supporting quality control. Drone-captured 2D images are now commonly used to create 3D models to document as-built conditions, monitor progress, and calculate material quantities. Incorporating aerial infrared thermography gives innovative contractors new insights into as-built conditions, envelope integrity, quality control, and building energy performance. In this presentation, Dr. Joe Burgett discussed the opportunities, challenges, and barriers to leveraging drones in construction. He also talked about the cost of starting a program, and the steps contractors should follow to operate in the national airspace.
