"We think drones are entering a new era," Noah Poponok, an aerospace and defense specialist with Goldman Sachs Research, suggested in a May video on the firm's website. "There's the common thread of them increasing efficiency, increasing safety and doing so at lower costs and, cumulatively over the next five years, we see this as a $100 billion market."

As-designed vs. as-built

Drone imagery and data integration with CAD and BIM software is providing AEC professionals with specific tools for gauging project compliance and identifying where real-world construction is veering off course. The ability to pinpoint deviation from a plan is expected to positively impact budget and project delivery by reducing costly change-orders before construction errors occur.
