Structure & Building Inspection With Drones - A Virtual Workshop Examining Drone Types, Costs & Benefits

7 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Know the relevant standards and guidelines for building and structural condition assessments
  • Understand the access considerations involved in carrying out assessments of buildings and other structures
  • Know the availability of different types of drone hardware, and understand their capabilities and limitations
  • Integrate the data obtained from a drone review into a building and/or structural condition assessment


As structures and buildings age, those responsible must get involved with routine inspections and condition surveys. Individuals conducting condition surveys and other inspections often need help obtaining access to the building and structural elements that require assessment, which must be balanced against the available inspection budget. This course explains how drone technology can enhance inspection by combining professional assessment techniques with new drone technologies.

The course will discuss various types of drone hardware, their strengths and limitations, and how to incorporate data obtained into the overall assessment successfully.
