D.J. Miller & Sons Construction is constantly expanding into the technological fields to help benefit their clients in all aspects of construction:
Companies building and managing large infrastructure such as roads, railways, bridges, dams, water reservoirs, airports, industrial complexes, oil and gas operations, and mines have considerable potential to use drone data to optimize their operations.
The complexity and scale of such projects exposes them to many challenges this technology can help solve, including long and costly surveys, early identification of construction mistakes, penalties for missing deadlines, miscommunication between stakeholders and contractors, and volumetric assessment. It can also help stakeholders efficiently survey to avoid financial liabilities post-construction due to lack of maintenance and resultant damage to the environment.
Drones can also open up new applications that were previously very hard or costly to access or closely track. Think of monitoring or inspecting hard-to-reach areas or of analyzing and optimizing rapidly changing environments such as construction sites.
Use of GPS technology to guide and control earth-moving equipment such as dozers, motor graders, and excavators has quickly become commonplace in highway construction because it speeds project delivery and cuts costs.
We are striving to incorporate this technology to better benefit our clients in all their construction requirements.
