Aerial Photography for the

Construction Industry

Aerial Photography on a Construction Site 

 Aerial photography over a construction site can show every stage of a development from planning, foundations, building topping out through to completion.  There is no better way of getting an overview progression of a construction site that by using aerial pictures.

Xozzi Aerial Services’ pilots are all CAA approved and have over 20 years construction experience.  We work with our construction clients to really understand their requirements and how they wish to use the aerial photography.

Flying drones (UAV’s) is a very cost-effective way of recording progress and issues on a construction site,  all the way through to the production of \”as built\” and hand over documentation.

For example, post construction we have used Ultra-HD 4K video and still images to provide information and evidence relating to the release of contract retention money, without to need to erect expensive scaffolding.

Construction site aerial photography is now being integrated into mainstream construction CAD software.  Monthly progress photographs are being used to produce full 2D site images that can be used for accurate measurement and use in conjunction with traditional quantity surveying methods.

We have recently been contracted by a commercial client to provide aerial images relating to a serious fire and the subsequent £5 million rebuilding funded by the insurance company.

Xozzi Aerial Services see the applications where aerial photography drones (UAV’s) can be used cost-effectively in the construction industry, growing enormously in the next few years.

Now in 2018 Drone images are being used to create 3D meshes for building construction sites at key stages/milestones and these meshes are being integrated into the layers of CAD and construction project management software.
