The Benefits of Drones in Evaluating the Building Enclosure

Investigating and evaluating building enclosures can be challenging due to access issues. Closely observing multi-story buildings often requires using man lifts, high-reach equipment, scaffolding, etc., which can be costly and time consuming. The FAA recently adopted procedures and certifications for use of drones for hobby and business use. Drones can quickly elevate and fly to the highest edges of a building in a matter of seconds and capture real-time, high-resolution video and photographs. This presentation will detail the pros and cons of drone use on facilities, privacy issues, and FAA Regulations.

Learning Objectives:

1. Discuss the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) recently adopted procedures and certifications for use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UASs)/Drones for hobby and business use
2. Identify how (UAS)/Drones can capture real-time, high-resolution video and photographs, and reduce the time and money it takes to perform a typical evaluation
3. List the pros and cons of drone use on facilities, privacy issues, and FAA Regulations
4. Observe videos and images that illustrate how drones help evaluate hard-to-reach areas of the building enclosure including multi-stories, steep sloped roofs, steeples, and spires
