New York City Looks to Drones to Assist in Façade Engineering Inspections


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/02/2022 -- Drones are being increasingly welcomed into many sectors due to their convenience and usefulness. Although New York has so far seen only limited use for this tech when it comes to façade inspections (due to restrictive local ordinances) that is all about to change as a new report has identified how drones could be used more when it comes to façade engineering inspections in the future. The report from the New York City Department of Buildings identifies drones as a useful tool. It says that, when combined with traditional hands-on examinations, the drones could potentially make future inspections more thorough and comprehensive. Right now, there are significant restrictions in place when it comes to flying drones over New York City - and only specific locations where it's legal for them to take off and land - but this could soon be about to change if the recommendations of the Department of Buildings report are widely accepted.
