Survey and Mapping

The latest tool in the Construction Industry

The New Zealand construction industry is embracing drone technology for more accurate and efficient surveying, safer inspections, and more visible site mapping. From the original design phase and visualising the project site to monitoring project progress, safely looking over hand-to-view areas and even measuring fill content for earthworks, drones are rapidly becoming invaluable tools in the construction industry.

Our team work with the giants of the New Zealand construction industry to help our clients achieve what was once out of reach. Our clients, which range from BECA to Fulton Hogan, have utilised drones for a range of activities, including tracking project progress, inspecting existing structures, stockpile measurement, site mapping, thermal building inspection, architectural modelling, quality checking and more.
