Application of drones in construction

Due to the current development in the field of the construction industry, it led us to construct high rise buildings.

Usually, in traditional practice, all the columns are projected downwards. Thus, there is no extra space for usage in the buildings. Because of this, some developments like parking facilities and play area is not available in the buildings.

1. 3D Printer

2. Automobile Prototyping

3. CNC Machine using Arduino

4. Project Management with Primavera

Due to the increasing need of the people the high rise structures which are built, are not built in that accuracy where the planned cost and scheduled time is met in a construction project.

The projects which are built are mainly observed and checked by humans and humans have a tendency to make an error and in construction, human error can be corrected but again it leads to an increase in the cost, hence increasing the cost of the project, leading loss to the owner.

The advances which are being developed in the field of computers and IoT should be efficiently used in construction and hence the usage of drones in construction is becoming a need in the construction industry.

The usage of drones has now improved and project managers, now use drones for project management i.e. to accurately get the data in the construction

Drones work in construction:

  • Drones help builders to easily collect data and helps in taking precautions for a minute work which may lead to loss of thousands in construction.
  • Watching the progress of work for only some hours helps in saving them loss in lakhs and also helps them by saving their time.

Working methodology:

  • Drones collect the aerial data
  • The aerial data collected is now analyzed in various software like AutoCAD, etc.
  • The various features like topography, contour maps, etc. are obtained from AutoCAD
  • Now the various other planning like 3D modeling, cost analysis is carried out using various softwares.

  • Primavera and primavera risk analysis


  • Drones can be used in the marketing of the building.
  • Drones can be used in data collection
  • Drones can be used in surveying
  • Drones can be used in remote sensing
  • Drones can be used in improvising the safety requirements
  • Drones can be used in aesthetic looks of the building


  • Drone helps to understand the unsafe stages in building construction.
  • Drone helps to control the surveillance, due to which project can run smoothly
  • Drone helps to reduce human labor in construction.
  • Drone helps to reduce the risks more efficiently.


  • The maintenance of drones
  • It needs skilled labors for its operation
  • The drones are expensive
  • These can also be dangerous due to high speed rotating blades
  • The drones have high complexity


The drones can be efficiently used in the construction of high rise buildings and since these are still in R and D, they need to be further developed such that their usage can be easy and can be used in the construction industry without any effort.
