Get Comprehensive Drone and Data Services for Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC)
There’s no need to own a drone, maintain a pilot on staff, or analyze data. We’ve built our service based on years of operations with leading Architectural, Engineering and Construction firms. As a result, you can procure enterprise-grade aerial intelligence featuring easy to understand action items and takeaways through our simple, turnkey service.
Here's how it works:
FAA Licensed Drone Pilots, trained to serve enterprises in AEC, deploy ground control points, as well as an array of visual and advanced sensors to collect data over the assets.
Construction Management Tracking
Drone aerial photography helps keep projects on track. Make better decisions with drone data and visual project updates
Use aerial imagery to identify specific issues on your job site.
Put Aerial Intelligence to Work on Your Job Site Today!
Don’t just collect data — get insights. Use our intuitive reporting system to resolve issues or integrate data into VDC and project management systems.
Planning, site selection, and estimating:
LIDAR-equipped drones can map vegetation, terrain and water features
Cut and fill analysis:
Project Engineers can compare 3D site models to the final grade elevation and determine progress towards site balancing
Project superintendents can track earth moving progress, using grade elevation for precise measurement
Foundation and utilities:
Site workers can view overlay site designs and line work to assess layout accuracy and catch mistakes
Virtual construction teams can review built conditions in BIM models and project managers can track job progress
Owners can detect leaks and cracks to identify potential warranty claims among other defects.
Matterport Service Provider
Faster and more complete than 3D laser scanning.
The Matterport Pro2 3D Camera captures 2D photography and 3D data from job sites, and automatically stitches them into a complete, immersive 3D model of a real-world job site. Take this 3D model and annotate, share, and export the point cloud to Autodesk ReCap® or Revit®.
Quicker than 3D laser scanning, more complete than handheld 3D scanners.
