Drone technology is helping create greater efficiency in construction. To demonstrate the capabilities of drones, Brasfield & Gorrie partnered with Microsoft and DroneDeploy.
“Through this new partnership, we’ve created a much more efficient process,” said Brasfield & Gorrie CEO Jim Gorrie. “We can literally take weeks out of a schedule. Our projects are much higher quality than before, and they’re safer. Over the last few years, you can see the efficiencies that are being gained by the use of drones and related technology. The future of drones is unlimited—we’re going to see more change in the next five or 10 years than we’ve seen in the last 50.”
