The construction industry has evolveed rapidly and advances with a variety of new technologies, especially in communications and computing abilities. As such, it has offered a drone as a tool. The drone previously has risen in military applications for spying and to get mapping area Specifically to the construction project, the drone can be applied as a tool for visual inspections process such as area mapping, tracking work in progress, inspections of built up structure and locating and identigying construction defects . Ageing and fatigue of infrastfuctures has became a major concern especially for elevated highway and bridges where the service life is shorten. Therefore it requires an optimied procedure and the use of drones is explored within this study. This study, aims at the application of technology which is drones for structural/construction inspection through visualisation approach. In order to achieve the aims of this research several objectives has been identified which is to explore , appraise and syntheisise relevant literature related to visual inspection specific focus on ability , usage, evolution, implementation requirement and success factor. Another objective is to explore and develop the proposed method of statement and risk asessment of drones and to establishes the sequences for visual inspection process. Lastly is to test and refine the proposed method of statement of application of drone for visual inspection in construction project.
