Why Are Construction Companies Using Drones?
Construction companies use drones to get an aerial view of their sites, track stockpiles of materials, identify safety concerns, and survey the property site. When used judiciously, drones provide an important new technology that assists in resolving construction cases.
At Kearney & O’Banion, we’ve used drones as a cost-effective tool in assisting our clients in complex residential construction disputes. We have an in-house drone operator who is FAA licensed and experienced in using drones for construction cases.
Drones are Being Used in Construction to:
- Inspect worksites
- Survey properties
- Create maps
- Identify differences between as-built and as-designed site plans
- Confirm a construction project’s goals and timelines are being met
- Identify safety concerns at the work site
- Measure a construction project’s progress
- Pinpoint the source of potential construction delays
- Track stockpiles of materials on the construction site
- Visually verify construction work has taken place by overlaying design documents
- Confirm property lines with aerial photography taken by drone
What Technical Drone Skills are Required in Construction Cases?
You may have seen someone playing around with a drone for fun at the beach. Using a drone for a construction case or a construction project isn’t the same. To successfully accomplish specific goals with a drone, it’s essential to have experience, skills, and properFederal Aviation Administration (FAA) licensing.
FAA Licensing is Required to Operate Drones in California
In California, you need a license to operate a drone. Our drones are registered with the Federal Aviation Administration and have an FAA registration number affixed to them before flying them. Kearney & O’Banion’s drone investigations are led by Connor Kearney, an experienced, FAA-licensed drone pilot.
