Drones digitally design/accompany the innovation construction process:2 Effective! 1Efficient! 1Economical! 2



Autonomycs, such as flying drones or ground robots, enormously accelerate construction processes with their digital extensions and high-tech measuring equipment. Existing or future construction sites can be precisely surveyed by photogrammetric or lidar acquisition by drone. This provides accurate data for 3D processing of construction and real estate projects. They can be used to create a "digital double" that visualises a construction project, identifies potential construction problems at an early stage, and additionally serves as a basis for "Building Information Modelling" (BIM).

Equipped with a ground penetration radar (GPR), the subsoil can be examined and evaluated in depth in the run-up to a project. Depending on the ground conditions, disturbing stones, underground watercourses, cables, pipes and even unexploded ordnance from the Second World War can be detected at an early stage.

Construction site time lapse / target and actual state
Inspecting construction sites by drone is safe and fast and can avoid shutdowns to reduce costs.

Façade flight

Structural scanning of existing buildings. Damage to facades is recorded by drone and evaluated fully automatically via software.


Photogrammetry is an established method for obtaining three-dimensional information for surveying. Measuring the future.

Soil exploration

A ground penetrating radar enables the electromagnetic depth detection of the soil. Depending on the soil material and depth, valuable information about the subsoil can be obtained. This is information about stones, groundwater, channels, supply lines such as cables or even unexploded ordnance, etc. Innovative application methods and procedures then transform this data into meaningful (also 3D) models that help to avoid time- and cost-intensive planning errors.

Drones fly over facades at defined distances, to assess the condition for example of older buildings,. High-resolution special cameras are able to record any damage to the Façade: its moisture, the distribution of temperature on it and, in the case of a combined GPR operation, the condition of the concrete and its reinforcements.

By capturing the Façade-damage on its exact location with high precision, these images also optimize possible repair- and maintenance-work cost-effectively, thereby reducing overall costs. This is because set-up times are achieved much shorter and the best possible use of materials is always guaranteed. As a service, regular drone flights are documenting the entire construction cycle and ensure that the property retains its value.

Firstly, a photogrammetric flight-survey by a drone determines the condition and the corresponding surface structure of the building.  Afterward the drone flies in a special  "loop-flight" at a defined distance alongside the facade.  For this application, special drones are additionally fitted with various features such as GPR, Lidar, thermal camera or multispectral camera, etc.
