Many leading construction companies and Facilities Managers are reaping the rewards that come with drone surveying, but some are still seeking guidance on how drones help improve their business processes.


So say the results of Sky Revolutions' first interrogation of the market. Their Drone Effectiveness Study was implemented to get a better understanding of what the construction sector thinks of commercial drone services.


Sky’s Director Ben Gorham: “The market for commercial drone services has boomed in the last 12 months with an ever-growing number of drone operators offering specialist aerial surveying. Early adopters that have understood the benefits for construction are now reaping the rewards.”


And the rewards are great - when it comes to commercial drone services, the case for return on investment is obvious. Drones are faster, safer and more cost-effective than manual systems, and they can collect more data too. From large scale capital projects and major infrastructure surveys to single roof and building inspections - asset managers, project managers, and maintenance personnel in-the-know are having a field day with drones.


But with new market development comes that inevitable explosion in service providers – should buyers proceed with caution when it comes to employing drone operators? And are service providers clear how best to support those buyers?


Sky Revolutions decided to go straight to their markets and ask the question directly – what do they think of commercial drone surveys, and what do they need from a service provider? Respondents were asked for their views on a range of questions from their perceptions of drones, to the support they need to make clear decisions.


The study also touches on the recent government consultation (and potential new legislation). The results throw sharp focus on pilot competency and mandatory drone registration, suggesting a desire for enforced sector professionalism.
