On Demand through May 23, 2018

Duration:60 minutes


It’s no secret that drones are rapidly becoming an essential tool on the job site. Construction and engineering professionals are tapping into the technology in order to monitor project progress, manage stockpile assets, create on-demand 3D models and more. But how do you scale a UAS program from a proof-of-concept and ensure that every team is following the same standards of safety and operating at maximum efficiency?

During this webinar, attendees will learn how to keep rogue drones out of your business and scale your program across a construction enterprise. Hear from UAS leaders at Brassfield & Gorrie and Hensel Phelps on lessons learned from the job site and insider tips on building a professional drone program. 

The content of this webinar is produced and directed by the event's sponsor.
