In the marketing world, technology pushes our imaginations further and helps raise the level of design and media we create to newer heights.

With the rise of drone technology comes a plethora of new ways to enhance our brand. While they’re used for racing and even as personal servants, many still believe the exclusive domain of the drone remains limited to just video and photography, but in the construction world that’s just the foundation

How can we utilize Drones?

Volumetric Measurements


Drones have helped to create better safety records and keep projects consistently on-track and within budget. Unlike older forms of costlier, less efficient aerial photography, drones can be deployed more frequently and at a moments notice. Additionally, we can utilize drones to access dangerous areas for inspection without exposing workers to any potential risks.

By the numbers…

So how did the drone industry come to prominence? Thanks to the construction industry, of course. With analysts believing the drone industry will top $5 billion by 2020*, construction companies will be saving $127.3 billion in labor and services thanks to drone technology.

The Drones future at Holt

For Holt Construction, this trend promises to place us in a key position. While our competition is utilizing traditional means, we are moving forward; pioneering into new, but solid, technology. We can help Ed Pross create new strategies when it comes to construction safety or Frank Forcino seeing a new view of the Monticello Office Urgent Care and Primary Care facility he is spearheading. But that’s not all… we can also use it to create stunning videos of job sites and progress shots that will reach potential clients.

The Reassurance of Being Insured

While currently not mandated on a state or federal level for recreational or commercial drone usage, having liability insurance is a huge indicator that shows how reputable and serious you are at what you do.

Do you have these?

  • At least 50-100 hours of flight time
  • Keeping a maintenance log
  • Information about your company
  • The type of coverage you need
  • The cost of each part of your equipment
  • How much training you’ve received
  • Specific information about the UAV
  • Where you’re planning to operate
  • How many hours you’ve flown
  • Any previous accidents or loss

Do make sure you have these.
