“The ability to automate micro drones has been a game changer, and has allowed us to scale the drone program to most of our sites using the personnel already on site.”
- Federico Pensa, Innovation Director, Magil Construction
Magil Construction is a general contractor with projects across Canada. They have an internal drone program flying weekly progress monitoring missions on active sites for improving project management processes and quality control. Captured data is processed in Pix4D into high resolution maps, and 3D models, and shared online between all team members.
Multi-User Operations Management
Multi-user Dronelink accounts enable missions to be created the BIM team, and are executed by users on site. New plans can be accessed, run and edited by other users. A history of flights can also be tracked or integrated with other tools to help with operations management.
Combine Multiple Mission Types for Any Need
Magil's team creates multiple missions for each project that are run depending on the need. A standard mission is flown weekly and consists of a NADIR cross-hatch grid map combined with oblique interval photos from an orbit or spiral for improved 3D modeling. Other missions include a quick 5 photo mission, a pre-concrete slab pour mission, or specific video or improved 3D modeling missions.
