Wynne Construction is using drone technology to improve client communication, continuing to position itself as a leader in its field. This is also saving time and reducing costs as well as adhering to social distancing measures, enforced by the Government due to COVID-19.
We have used the equipment at developments including Ysgol Penyffordd, Flintshire, and Coleg Cambria Yale, Wrexham, and we are preparing to implement the technology for our upcoming project with Adra housing.
Adra, previously known as Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd (CCG), has appointed Wynne to build 38 new apartments on the former Bangor social club site on Farrar Road in the city. And the use of drone footage will play a crucial role for clear and effective collaboration between teams.
Richard Wynne, design coordinator at Wynne Construction, said: “There are tons of benefits to using drones for both ourselves and our clients. We can share screen footage in real time, which can be recorded and shared via a link afterwards. It really aids communication with the client during update meeting, and it’s also fantastic for them to see live visuals of what their project looks like.
“They are also useful for surveys as we can receive the necessary visuals and minimise health and safety risks as physical access to the roof is not required. We’re looking forward to using this technology with our client, Adra housing, which is keen to embrace modern ways of working.
“Another plus for all parties is the time and cost saved from travelling to and from site, as well as the benefit of less journeys having a positive impact on the environment.
Wynne Construction was awarded a drone licence in 2017 and has been using footage to bring communities closer to the schemes they are working on. Richard added: “Local media have shared our drone content and it’s always very popular on social media. Many of our projects are of interest to local residents who benefit from a birds-eye view, which they couldn’t see themselves. It helps them feel a part of the development.”
