Brasfield & Gorrie Use Drone Mapping Software to Optimize Project Delivery

Brasfield & Gorrie’s virtual design and construction team is utilizing DroneDeploy software to enhance site planning, design, and safety. Drones can rapidly capture aerial images of a building site, and drone mapping software produces 3D point clouds for integration with Building Information Modeling (BIM) and virtual reality platforms. Brasfield & Gorrie has equipped each of their regional offices with DJI Inspire series drones which upload data to the DroneDeploy dashboard. The point clouds are then imported to Autodesk Revit where the data is overlaid on 3D site plan models to enhance the delivery of structures and services, as well as allowing comparison of what has been constructed with the design intent. These models can enhance worksite safety by enabling remote walk-throughs, and can allow owners and clients to provide feedback on facilities currently under construction without being present on the job site.
