Smarter construction starts with detailed, dynamic data to create robust models and spur insightful action. With ARC Drone Services, you gain access to a nationwide fleet of FAA-compliant, licensed drone operators ready to deploy and deliver the data you need to make crucial decisions in as little as 24 hours.
Equipped with innovative, leading-edge sensors and the latest scanning and imaging technology, ARC’s drone fleet gathers up-to-the-second data to generate a suite of automated analytics with a broad range of applications to conserve time and maximize profits.
Land and Site Surveys: Drones safely survey and map any property or terrain and return results faster and with more precision than traditional methods.
Jobsite Progress Tracking: Monitor changes and document progress no matter where you are with a concrete visual timeline for improved accuracy of your scope, schedule, and budget while also reducing your risk for future claims.
Site Conditions: Gain insight into site conditions with every-angle accuracy above and below your site’s surface that traditional inspection and survey methods may miss.
Jobsite Inspections: Drone technology can help find and resolve concerns before an inspection takes place while also providing inspectors with accurate images that make the process run smoother and more efficiently.
Safety Surveys & Security Monitoring: Deploy drones to monitor your jobsites and protect against loss of materials with aerial equipment maps, and keep your workers safe with aerial inspections that can identify structural, biological, and other safety hazards in real-time.
Photo and Video Capture: Identify and label locations, resources, and assets with high resolution images that offer an unprecedented overview of your site at any stage, and capture progress with aerial videos from any angle or height quickly and safely.
LiDAR and Thermal Scanning: Map large sites, generate digital surface models, build topology models and contour line maps, calculate volume measurements, and more with one single stream of accurate data collected using drone-mounted LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensors that capture data up to 70% faster than traditional methods. Gain aerial heat images and thermal footage to inspect, map, and gain valuable insight into any location.
Hyperspectral Imaging: Using electromagnetic radiation at wavelengths that are not limited by the visible spectrum, hyperspectral images can provide information about soil conditions before you break ground, locate asbestos in components of existing structures, and new research has found that it has the future application potential serve as a non-destructive tool to test the strength of construction materials.
2D and 3D Mapping: Measure and map any area and terrain no matter where you happen to be at any stage of the process, gaining vital details to use in marketing materials, inform your bids, generate models, and make strategic decisions based on up to the minute conditions.
BIM Conversion: Drone-generated point clouds contain millions of points of resolution and can be used to generate highly detailed 3D models at a fraction of the cost and in less than half the time it could take to complete a less detailed ground-based survey method to generate a BIM model.
