With so many new opportunities on the horizon, construction firms will have to bid on highly competitive government projects and follow stringent regulations for compliance and safety. One strategy that can help construction firms build a strong reputation is the use of time lapse.
CamDo customer, David Manzo, owns Bejaw Video Productions in the San Francisco Bay area. He recently completed his first time lapse photography project for a local construction firm. They were building a high-tech campus featuring four towers and one parking structure, with a project cost between $700-800 million.
Manzo used an UpBlink with a GoPro HERO5. He set the equipment for max photo size and took one photo every 15 minutes on Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The equipment was installed on a 45-foot pole from September 2019 until November 2020.
Passive homes are much more numerous in Europe than they are in the U.S., but awareness is growing. The passive home Adams + Beasley is building in Acton, Massachusetts was designed by architects at ZeroEnergy Design.
CamDo customer, Metropolis Visual needed to mount the cameras as high as possible to capture all the activities, but placing the cameras was a challenge. Since a small part of the building wouldn’t be demolished, they were not able to drill holes in the building.
Read this second part of the series of "The Do's and Dont's of Construction Time Lapse Photography." In this series you will discover ways to identify the length of your project, cameras to use, memory and power capacity of your device and much more!
At CamDo we understand that image and video quality is the number one requirement for a lot of customers, therefore, we are expanding our camera range. We are excited to announce that UpBlink is now compatible with Sony RX0 II.
When it comes to capturing daily status information, the CloudX Time Lapse Platform is perfect for all of your time lapse creation needs. The CloudX platform allows for integration with leading construction management software platforms, automatic upload to the cloud, and added flexibility. Here are three important reasons why you need to make this platform a purchasing priority before you start your next project.
Now, you can sync your CamDo construction time lapse images directly to PlanGrid Photos. All the powerful features you frequently use in PlanGrid, such as creating RFI's, tracking defects and communicating on issues, can now be enhanced with additional content captured through your CamDo construction time lapse setup.
This year, ENR FutureTech 2021 is being held on June 9-11, 2021 as a virtual event and we’re proud to be a sponsor. You can join hundreds of business and IT leaders in architecture, engineering, and construction to explore the latest technology. In our fast-paced environment, these emerging technologies will help you improve productivity, enhance sales effectiveness, protect your job sites, and improve profits.
Construction time lapse photography has evolved and become an increasingly reliable way to cover and assess the progress of projects on job sites. However, these future trends for time lapse photography are speeding things up without putting any proverbial dents in quality.
Who knew measuring time was such an important aspect of photography? For professional constructiontime lapsesand photo delays, you will need to use a rig that has an effective intervalometer. This device is an adjustable timer that can be used to limit the number of wasted shots and select the times when you want photo capture. But how does an intervalometer work? And why is it so important to industrial photography?
Construction is a trillion dollar industry for a reason. Even small construction projects can cost millions of dollars in investments. Commercial jobs with this kind of scale and value require a high degree of monitoring in order to effectively secure the developer’s return on investment (ROI). Construction site monitoring can’t be limited to a photographer or a security team. It needs to be implemented from the top-down, using a manager’s perspective.
