ZS utilizes Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), also referred to as drones, to offer additional capabilities and benefits in providing innovative architectural and engineering services.
The ability to collect and use large amounts of data is transforming our world. ZS is using drone hardware and software to capture and digitally replicate assets, giving owners the ability to visualize and manage their valuable assets.
Our engineers and architects are certified experts in the use of drone technology and, more importantly, experts in asset inventory and inspections. Our teams help owners collect and process drone data into deliverables to be analyzed, annotated, stored, and shared. Drones are also used to assist in BIM data collecting and screening, ZS’ forensic engineering services, building envelope façade inspections, etc. The drones are capable of carrying a variety of payloads including inspection, photogrammetric, multispectral and LiDAR sensors.
Advantages of using UAV technology include enhanced data collection on a wide range of projects; ability to better map areas that may otherwise be difficult or unsafe to traverse; and in certain instances, a more cost-effective means of collecting data versus traditional methods.
