More About EDVY

The EDVY competition was established in 2019 to highlight the burgeoning use of drones in the AEC industry and to celebrate the way drones changed our perspective when looking at projects. Since that time, the use of drones has exploded within the AEC industry as new tools and technologies are being developed to expand the use of unpiloted systems.
