Aerial Construction Monitoring
Aerial Construction Monitoring

Construction projects are complicated, time-consuming and resource-intensive. Aerial monitoring services from Building Diagnostics Group can make it easier to keep track of a project by providing real time data and a birds-eye view of the site.

Building Diagnostics Group (BDG), founded in 2002, is an industry leader in aerial infrared imaging and commercial building thermal inspection services.  We specialize in the non-destructive detection, investigation and resolution of water intrusions.

Our aerial construction site monitoring services involve the collection of site data at predetermined intervals or during specific project milestones for analysis by construction managers and owners using a variety of tools, such as photorealistic 3D models, surface and volume measurements, BIM comparisons and timeline data.

From scouting a site to completion of a project, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), otherwise known as drones, enable clients to see conditions they would not be able to see by simply walking the construction site, as well as current real-time conditions. Compared to hiring a helicopter, drones are more flexible and less expensive.

Our Fleet and Equipment

BDG maintains a fleet of four DJI Inspire and Matrice aircraft that are deployed by our FAA Authorized Commercial Drone Remote Pilots based on the specifics of each particular mission.

The drones are specially equipped with high-resolution FLIR camera systems and feature a Zenmuse XT 640×512 resolution radiometric infrared camera that is capable of producing high-resolution images and video.

Our aerial services include as many photos and videos as are needed to capture the entire construction site from all angles and perspectives. They can be uploaded to our cloud reporting platform that can produce a large format stitched image or a 3D model that can easily be annotated, measured, and shared with others.

BDG’s drones have the ability to get into high-risk areas and areas that may be hard to reach with a human crew. They can be used for preconstruction site visits, monitoring construction progress, post-construction monitoring, safety and security monitoring, management of client expectations, marketing, litigation support and more.

At the point where other companies might disappear, BDG will continue to ensure that your results are working for you by liaising with contractors and vendors, making ourselves available for additional project-related consultation, and undertaking additional reporting and investigative work. We enter into relationships with a long-term outlook. Our commitment to you does not end upon delivery.

The more information you have at your fingertips, the more control you will have over your construction project.
