Abstract. Construction site monitoring and progress monitoring is becoming increasingly popular in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. To this end remote sensing techniques are used to gather consecutive datasets of the construction site. This work focuses on the recording of imagery for photogrammetric processing and the challenging conditions often encountered on construction sites. The constantly evolving character of a such sites requires datasets to be captured as quickly as possible. Furthermore other recording complexities arise such as the presence of auxiliary equipment and clutter or reflections caused by wet surfaces, hindering quick and complete recordings. Apart from these external factors also construction elements themselves often complicate the capturing workflow.

This work enumerates several real-world examples of difficulties construction sites pose for the recording of imagery for photogrammetry purposes. Each section provides an insight in a specific challenge, typical for construction sites, and discusses applicable field-tested solutions including an overview of relevant solutions found in literature.
