Balfour Beatty: Construction Sites Will Be Human-free by 2050

Robots are already in use on the jobsite, filling roles from overhead photography and surveying to worker and equipment tracking, and even site access and security. Technology on the horizon includes teams of remotely controlled machines that can work together efficiently. 

Four Tips to Make Sure Drones Don’t Leave You High and Dry

A decent amount of red tape comes with the adoption of drones in the workplace, so here is what construction owners and contractors can do to avoid putting their companies and crews at risk.

IoT Is the Next Frontier for Drone Data

AEC firms are building on what wearable device-loving fitness enthusiasts have known for years: that measurement increases effectiveness, whether it’s steps walked and hours slept or cubic yards of earth moved. The construction industry is perfectly positioned to take IoT one step further and combine it with drone data to track and optimize operations for complete visibility into everything happening on the jobsite. 

Be Proactive About Crafting a Company Drone Policy

Construction firms should expect the drone compliance topic to develop rapidly, as other agencies may provide supplementary rules to address the impact of unmanned aircraft on the areas they regulate. It is important for contractors and their attorneys to stay up to speed on current developments to ensure that they are managing their risks effectively. 

Construction Companies Are Uniquely Poised to Maximize Drones’ Potential

Commercial drones are just beginning to take off in the United States. Construction firms of all sizes have been quick to identify dozens of use cases that have made old processes faster, cheaper, safer and simpler—as well as create entirely new revenue streams.

Prior to the FAA licensing drone operators, certified pilots were the only individuals authorized to operate commercial drones and companies needed to secure an exemption for any use, often making operations expensive and cumbersome.
