When you think of futuristic devices, your mind might jump straight to technology like drones. It's easy to imagine a world with drones flying everywhere, but today, they may seem like fancy toys.
That's not the case. For a company like Hensel Phelps Construction Co., drones can get tough jobs done faster and more safely. Take inspections, for example: The company can deploy a drone to fly up and perform a dangerous part of a building inspection remotely. With a built-in camera, inspectors can take pictures or watch live video to complete the inspection without putting themselves in any danger.
On top of this, conducting maintenance on the fleet of drones is easy thanks to their network-connected capabilities. If an issue is detected, the drone will send an alert to the control center, and an engineer can perform repairs before complete component or system failure. Managing all this is surprisingly simple: Hensel Phelps works with Skyward to streamline drone operations, cut costs and keep safety as a top priority.
In short, drones can help save on costs and improve efficiency for the construction industry, and they can deliver benefits across the business in other areas, too, including everything from data gathering to HVAC efficiency inspections.
