Some forward thinking construction firms are looking into the potential of using drones for their work. Currently, drones are primarily used to provide updates on the construction progress, providing images for documentation, and monitoring safety. Drones can help with the communication on sites and the drones can fly in and out of places that are inaccessible to project construction units. Drones overall ensure safety on a construction site, but their multi-use isn't for everyone.

Furthermore, drones can be expensive, costing $1,000 plus going through exemption certification because in the U.S. you can only legally operate a drone with an exemption from the Federal Aviation Administration. Plus, the FAA's regulations are always in a state of flux as the administration tries to meet the growth of drones across all industries.
