Capital project monitoring is a vital cog in the project management wheel with clear long term targets and milestones to be met.

Aerial drone surveys software systems provide complete monitoring services that can be distributed to stakeholders, investors and other relevant individuals in the sector so that they can track and monitor key capital project targets during the construction process.

What is a capital project?

A capital project is a long term infrastructure project such as hydro electric dams, road networks, railway lines of large scale property developments. What makes a capital project different from a standard infrastructure development project is the expanded timescale, higher cost and significant planning requirements that are required in order to achieve the end goal.

Capital Projects usually involve a large number or financial investors, contractors and stakeholders who all want to ensure that the project is running on time and to budget.

How can drone inspections help with this?

Using our award winning software, our drone inspections can track capital project worksite and their ongoing activities, producing readily shareable tracking reports of a project and its major milestones. Whether through 2D photography or 3D image capturing software, we can produce scheduled reports on capital projects development across site in Scotland and the North of England.

3D modelling can be used for capturing site development and can be used to monitor progress.

Planning for the future

As drone technology develops (such is the pace of development in the field), by the end of the decade, the use of aerial drones for site survey and visual inspection will become a vital commercial attribute that is used widely in the field. Drone inspections are a cost effective solution and the data captured by drone surveys can make a crucial difference in the ongoing managing of project costs. All while controlling project risks and increasing site safety on large scale construction capital project sites.
