Don’t Miss AGCA’s Five-Part WebEd Series on Use of Drones in Construction
AGC of America has scheduled a five-part WebEd series to address the various issues related to the commercial use of small drones. The WebEd will feature construction contractors already flying drones (UAVs), and both legal and other experts. It will provide a well rounded view of what it means to have UAV’s working on construction sites, covering performance, regulations, best practices, insurance, risk management, data use, and much more.
The data suggests that the construction industry will be one of the heaviest users of drone technology now and in the future. Until the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) finalized its new rules, the only lawful way for companies to use drones for commercial purposes was to apply for and get a “Section 333 exemption” from the FAA. Through January of this year, 48% of the 3,136 exemptions that the FAA had granted were specifically for use in the construction industry and approximately 50 of the exemptions granted were directly to construction and engineering firms. Anecdotal evidence suggests that AGC members are very interested in these vehicles, and are already experimenting with their use.
