What uses of the drone in architecture?
In the vast majority of cases, perhaps 75%, these are shots for projects completed or to be rehabilitated. For delivered projects, this can be used as a communication tool for town halls, while for renovation projects, it can be used to check the top of an inaccessible roof, for example. It's a kind of "super large scale".
In the competition phase, the drone makes it possible to realize global perspectives for the landscape insertion, because it is more precise than Google Earth.
Another mission may be to carry out compliance checks when receiving work.
On a construction site, for example, this may allow verification of the number of anchor hooks installed by the roofing company.
More marginally, the video-inspection for a structural diagnosis. Here again, the drone makes it possible to do without the intervention of a cordist who would take more time. It offers live video feedback and our engineers can point to any detail of the book. It is therefore more interactive.
Finally, the last use is thermography, which makes it possible to verify the correct implementation of roof insulation. It can usually be done from the ground but the drone is useful for successful projects of a certain magnitude.
