Construction worksites still look a lot like they always have: trucks, hardhats and tool belts haven’t changed a lot in the last couple of years.

It’s an evolution whose time has come. A 2016 article in Fortune magazine about drones in construction opened with: “The $8.5 trillion global construction industry isn’t exactly known for its efficiency,” and goes on to outline the billions of dollars that the construction industry loses in waste and cost overruns. The industry was ready for change, and they’ve been on the cutting edge of drone adoption – analysts estimate that the construction sector is driving a third or more of drone industry growth.Construction, News
