DELTA ENGINEERING DEPLOYS DRONES IN ENGINEERING CONSULTING
SARASOTA, FL – March 10, 2017 – Delta Engineering & Inspection, Inc. is proud to announce the use of drones in building and roofing inspections. A complete high-rise building inspection would usually require several weeks of planning, obtaining various permits, insurance, specialized equipment, and a swing stage crew. The entire process is costly, labor intensive and dangerous to employees. Now, a single individual operating a drone can accomplish the same job in a significantly smaller amount of time and expense.
The use of drones on the construction site or during building inspections is quickly becoming a more cost-efficient, time-saving, and economical solution for clients. A lightweight, nearly-silent inspection drone can skim the outer walls and roof of a building and quickly document any potential problem areas with high resolution photos and video. Drones are increasingly able to remain stable in crosswinds in order to deliver a steady video feed and execute hairpin turns with absolute precision. Delta Engineering has embraced this emerging technology and now currently offers this valuable inspection tool to our clients. Delta Engineering employs on staff a licensed and certified FAA pilot for unmanned aircraft systems often referred to as drones.
