Volumetrics results in savings
A $500M Virginia high-rise project identified contaminated soil that needed to be hauled offsite. Using drones on a weekly basis, the project manager tracked the hauling work conducted by a subcontractor. They saved $32,000 by identifying errors in the reporting of work performed.
A contractor was bidding on a $150M Detroit government building project. However, the building was half-complete and the existing contractor’s plans were inaccurate, making it difficult to develop an accurate bid. The bidding contractor used drones to collect data, produce a 3D model, and ultimately deliver an accurate and winning bid.
A project engineer was overseeing the development of a complex foundation for a $100M Alabama Cold Storage facility. They flew drones twice a week, monitoring progress and validating work. In aerial imagery overlays, they identified the misalignment of heating pipework, ultimately resolving the error that would have otherwise resulted in costly rework had the mistake been detected later in the vertical construction process.
