The American Subcontractors Association: Drones on the Jobsite

(February 28, 2018) -- The American Subcontractors Association (ASA) hosted on Feb 27 their general meeting with a presentation titled "Drones on Jobsite." They demonstrated the capabilities of drones specifically at the construction job site. The presenter indicated that drones can capture imagery and data that can be processed into accurate maps, measurements, and 3D point clouds compatible with software – making design, communication, and quality assurance more collaborative than ever before. Dr. Tulio Sulbaran shared information about the construction program at the University of Texas – San Antonio (UTSA) and encouraged the participants to explore avenues to increase the pipeline of people interested in multiple construction career opportunities. The ASA is also exploring opportunities to assist the construction students in the Department of Construction Science at UTSA.
