Description

PCL Construction started flying drones on its projects more than 2 years ago. Today, it’s running a robust drone program on projects across North America, with dozens of pilots and hundreds of people using drone maps and models on a daily basis for site planning, progress tracking and reporting, quality control, and much more. In this session, PCL Construction and its drone partner, 3DR, will provide an inside look into how PCL built and scaled its drone program across the company. Bill Bennington, national quality manager, and Nico Bonnafoux, senior customer success architect at 3DR, will together host the session, and will cover how to implement a drone software platform effectively, navigate legal and compliance concerns, build an in-house drone team with flight procedures and fleet management, securely share data and make it accessible to project teams through BIM 360 software, scale drone operations across multiple projects, and establish an effective vendor-customer feedback loop.

Key Learnings

  • Understand and share best practices for building an enterprise-ready drone program
  • Learn how drone data can connect workflows through BIM 360 and be effectively used across AEC products
  • Learn how drone data can be used in AEC tools such as InfraWorks, Civil 3D, Revit, and more
  • Learn how to build compliance and safety into your drone operations
