'We firmly believe that this new UAV technology will revolutionize the way we approach the architectural and planning business,' the Miami-based company said.
'Through the use of drones, our design team now has access to a nearly infinite number of angles, scale and elevations, and still imagery that has been previously elusive.'
B&A outlined numerous ways to use UAVs, including generating reliable and accurate surveys in a fraction of the time to improve site planning and quality control. Captured data can be exported to numerous file types and imported into Revit, SketchUp and 3DS Max.
In addition, progress tracking via 'flight missions' can be programmed. These missions can be compared to previous models to track progress.
Plus, UAVs can capture high-resolution images and high-definition video, which can be used to create two-dimensional data and, through the use of photogammetry software, can also generate 3-D, interactive models.
