Demand for drones in the construction industry

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
Hope you are well 
Thanks for the guides and posts online, they have been very helpful. 
I’m reaching you out today to ask you a question: 
I’m studying in London, UK to become a construction manager and lately I have noticed the rising interest and uses of drones overall, but significantly also in construction.
What would you reckon the demand for drones is overall currently ? 
Do you see construction as “the major sector for drones employment”? If otherwise, what other sector is predominted?  
I thank you all in advance for your time.

Hello Vince, I actually do quite a bit of archival for construction projects. I use time lapse fixed cameras in addition to bi-weekly drone visits to the site. I edit the combination of videos each week and share with the construction company. I do a final video of time lapse and various stages of drone videos during construction. My clients have shared the progress of projects on their website and social media. In return, my list of clients have steadily increased each month. I actually prefer construction over real estate as you get to watch the progress of something being built. So, long answer .. yes, drones are a valuable part of construction projects.

Thanks for your response

i assume you have your own company and equipment. 

Would you say it is possible for licensed drone pilots to find job, also part time, in the construction sector ? 

I was thinking to get the license but work by someone else, therefore avoiding the costs of buying the equipment and so on.
