Everyone knows by now that drones are essential for construction projects. The most simple benefit of using drones on your construction project is to capture site progress over time. Whether your project takes daily, weekly, or monthly aerial progress photos, contractors or owners can use this data to evaluate if their project is on schedule and within budget. These aerial photos can also be used for marketing purposes and to serve as benchmarks for your future projects.
Did you know drones provide countless other benefits outside of progression photos? Some of these benefits include improving safety for workers, cheaper inspections, security and surveillance, marketing, topographic mapping, soil stockpile measurements, and cut and fill tracking.

Edwards Aerial is not a licensed surveyor. Edwards Aerial does not interpret survey grade information. Edwards Aerial can provide data in coordination with a licensed surveyor, but our deliverables do not replace the need for a licensed surveyor in any state. This is not exclusive to Edwards Aerial. Any drone operating company without a licensed surveyor on staff cannot legally interpret survey grade data.
