Drones could replace 25% of labor in Saudi's construction sector
Saudi Arabia's construction sector will use drones to monitor projects, ensure worker safety, and decrease manual rework as it recovers from the pandemic's impact, according to the Rabih Bou Rashid, the CEO of Falcon Eye Drones.
Rashid said that drones could be used to spot slip-ups prior to and during the construction to avert costly errors.
He added that drones could decrease manual rework by 25 percent in the industry and provide precise data.
The industry requires a significant number of laborers, making the effects of the coronavirus pandemic a considerable challenge.
According to Rashid, drones can provide the alternative to guarantee continuity of operations, while ensuring the public's health and safety.
Saudi's construction sector grew 8 percent in 2019 due to major projects of the Saudi Vision 2030 and contributed 12.6 percent to the country's Saudi GDP.
The sector remained stable in the first quarter.
