Cut and fill works being carried out in an image taken by a drone

Cut and Fill Analysis Earthwork volumetric measurements must be accurate to avoid costly construction delays. Drones are one of the most precise and convenient methods to calculate cut and fill ratios.

Accurate measurements you can rely on

There is little room for error when calculating cut and fill. Excavating too much (or too little) can cause labour costs to snowball and delay work. Drones are a precise, efficient way to calculate cut and fill without affecting work. Engineers With Drones complete measurements for you faster than usual, streamlining your project.

The measurements you need - in less time and with less fuss

Drones are a major improvement on common cut and fill measurement methods. In the past, the only option was to have personnel come in and manually calculate the volume. This is a time consuming process, not to mention that it prevents work from continuing on. Drones fly above the site - letting other work go on below without any delays. Measurements are taken faster than before, using only a fraction of the time and manpower.

Remove human error

We use the latest in 3D technology to calculate cut and fill. Our drone has a high quality camera, capturing the site from all angles - making deliverables accurate. As the measurements are automated, human error is removed entirely. No need for expensive do - overs or to remove or add materials based on incorrect measurements.

Multiple images taken from all angles allow us to create a highly detailed 3D model of the cut and fill area. Our drone sees the site from views inaccessible to humans, and gives a more accurate reading. The 3D software uses these images to create a precise model of the area, displaying differences in elevation. This method is among the most accurate, reducing errors and making the process easier.
