Drones Take Construction Industry Sky-High

With the modern era’s collision of technology and construction, drones are now known to help completely refine any project, no matter the difficulty. For example, by launching a drone over the Perano vineyard south of Florence, anyone can witness the progress of a 25,000-square-foot garden being built atop a wine cellar.

With this project in Italy (and several others), drones have allowed both commissioners and workers to observe the work of equipment, and determine general progress on any structure. On building sites, drones are saving money and time by providing digital images, maps and other files that are easily shareable. Watching drone footage is living proof.

The landscape architect who designed the Italian garden said the drone images helped move the project forward. “The garden design, which started in my head and was then calculated and set out on paper, could now be seen in full scale from the air, and all the lines and curves were in the right place,” he told the New York Times.

“These modern devices, these videos—it’s progress.”
