Abstract/Summary

This paper looks directly at BIM and Drone Technology in today's age and how their integrative capabilities with one another can result in a highly productive construction atmosphere. There is an abundance of research for the topic, but no real-life examples. Webcor will serve as this example via case study. The research methodology for the project will come from interviews and a questionnaire featuring a project manager, superintendent, licensed flyer, BIM engineer, and cost estimator. The variety of interviews, will showcase the effects drone technology and BIM have on different sectors of a business. Themes that come out of these interviews include, hardware, software, surveying, safety, and financial impact. These results prove that drone technology is a relatively new industry with great common applications. This paper focuses on major techniques companies can use to further integrate drones with BIM to increase productivity.
