Drone Insurance For The Construction Industry

Drones are fast becoming an integral part within the construction industry and we are seeing more quote requests coming through.  We understand the risks that construction businesses have and with the evolution of UAVs the risks that are emerging.  In many cases, drones have greatly reduced the cost of different aspects of the construction process.

DRONE GUARD offers comprehensive drone insurance policies for the construction industry.  This is aimed at all construction businesses deploying Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Small Unmanned Aircraft (SUA) at any stage of the project.

How UAVs are used in construction

In the construction industry, drones play an important role in different phases of a project starting with the site preparation to completion.  Some of the more common applications include the following: monitoring sites to ensure safety, surveying land, inspection of hard to reach areas, capturing an aerial view of projects during and after construction, mapping and 3D modelling.

With new technologies comes new risks and we are here to ensure you have the right cover in place to complement your construction business.
