Virtual Design + Construction (VDC)
Capturing construction progress photos has been a standard part of the project delivery process for years. Today, C.D. Smith is placing even more emphasis on this task to assist with quality control, limit risks, update stakeholders on construction progress and document as-built conditions.
At C.D. Smith Construction, we utilize Structionsite to take 360° photo documentation tied to the floor plans. Instead of still shots for every corner of the room, one snapshot or walk-through using a 360° camera captures the entire room with a date stamp and pins it to a specific location on the plan.
360° photos allow stakeholders to view a jobsite without physically being there. Through a computer or mobile device, a user can log in and click on any room on the floor plan and is instantly taken to an interactive view of the space as constructed to date.
The split-view allows users to compare what the project looks like today against what it looked like weeks ago or against what the coordinated construction model shows will be going there.
This historical information can also prove invaluable during facility management. The data is archived, and by clicking on any space, a facility manager can roll back time to any date to see the area without ceilings, drywall, insulation, or access flooring and view all the as-built building’s components that are now covered up.
Our clients appreciate being able to watch their building progress from wherever they happen to be.
Drone Capture | Bird's-Eye View
There’s no better way to see an eagle-eye perspective of a project than through flyovers. However, hopping on a plane to capture jobsite photos and video is costly and inefficient.
Aerial drones have been advancing how stakeholders access visual data on jobsites. Drones capture perspectives and angles in a safe, easy and efficient manner, allowing stakeholders to visualize and analyze the progress of their jobsite virtually.
As an added service, our licensed drone pilots collaborate with clients and project managers to incorporate drone technology into the construction workflow, from weekly flyover project updates to visually stunning jobsite photography and video for client marketing usage.
