Drones in the Supervision of Wastewater Treatment Facility Construction in Rovinj

In collaboration with Odvodnja Rovinj company, drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) were utilized for continuous monitoring and supervision of the progress in constructing wastewater treatment facilities over a period of 24 months.

Drones in the supervision of wastewater treatment facility construction bring a new dimension to monitoring and managing project processes.

This innovative approach involved bi-weekly aerial surveys with the aim of creating precise georeferenced 3D models, known as digital twins.

The creation of a digital terrain model enabled the client to track excavation quantities on the construction site on a weekly basis, providing valuable information about the progress of the work.

Continuous UAV monitoring allowed for precise productivity assessment, identification of potential shortcomings, and risky situations.

This facilitated informed decision-making and optimized management of operational processes.

In addition to providing real-time insight into the construction site, this approach establishes a long-term database with valuable information that can be utilized for future projects on the same site or in similar environments.

Aerial photogrammetric surveys and the development of digital terrain models enhance the monitoring and management of wastewater treatment facility construction, offering significant benefits to investors and stakeholders.

Integrating drones into the supervision of wastewater treatment facility construction brings transparency and reliability in all project phases

Precise georeferenced 3D models enable architects and engineers to have a better understanding of the spatial characteristics of the construction site.

Supervision through unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) reduces the risk of human errors and provides consistent results.

Clients have the opportunity to monitor the progress of wastewater treatment facility construction from the comfort of their office or any other location.

This technology allows for early identification of potential issues and their prompt resolution before they become serious.

Managing operational processes with drones enables the optimization of work schedules and better resource utilization.

Drones provide the capability to capture and analyze data from areas that are difficult to access or hazardous for humans.

Continuous project monitoring ensures compliance with set deadlines and prevents delays.

This technology has the potential to reduce overall construction costs and increase process efficiency.

The combination of drones and digital terrain models creates an innovative tool for designers and architects, enabling them to simulate different scenarios and optimize the design of wastewater treatment facilities.
