Drone Service Startup FairFleet Wins Startup Award at Orgatec 2018
Drone Service Startup FairFleet is the winner of the Architecture & Building STARTUP AWARD which was part of the ORGATEC in late October in Cologne. The STARTUPCORNER is an initiative to showcase all lateral thinkers, creative planners, and new business ideas from the architecture and building industry.
FairFleet and 14 other startups were selected to present their innovations from the 23rd to the 26th of October at the STARTUPCORNER. Their focus lied on the areas of architecture, lighting, acoustics, technology, media technology, object planning, office equipment as well as IT and services.
Besides being the platform for the selected startups, the STARTUPCORNER also offered an exciting programme. Daily the startups pitched and experts, as well as speakers from established companies shared their knowledge and expertise with the audience.
The winner FairFleet is a full-service partner for drone services, which offers everything from advice, planning and implementation to the dissemination of images and data.
How can the AEC industry benefit from the FairFleet service?
According to FairFleet architects and developers could use their drone shots as a perfect basis for making 3D visualizations and 3D videos in order to present their projects. “Both aerial photos and high-resolution video recordings can be used. 3D renderings can be installed in the actual environment. Thus, a construction project can be presented and sold by property developers or architects. Real insights to the not yet built property, not least through the special post-processing of image material, can be gained from high-quality architectural visualizations presented in an impressive manner.”
The use of drones in architecture and construction is increasing and connected job sites can benefit from the technological possibilies of drone technology. The possibility to outfit drones with high-definition cameras, infrared scanners and thermal sensors allows for gathering important data that can affect a project as early as the design phase.
