Drone used to speed Apopka hospital construction


The first step in any major construction project is moving the earth to conform with the architect's plans. But how best to determine when the earth-moving contractor has completed their job on a 61-acre site?

Florida Hospital Apopka contractor Brasfield & Gorrie decided to call in the Drone.

According to this article, the size of the site made it a great candidate for drone mapping, since using traditional methods would have been a very expensive and time-consuming process.

Dronebase, a drone services provider was hired to fly the site and provide the licensed pilot required. Due to the size of the site, multiple flights were needed. Total flight set-up and execution took about an hour.

An aerial drone was used to produce a 3-D image of the hospital site and determine how closely initial earthwork matched design plans.
