ZOM utilizes construction documentation technology to meet June 2015 completion.

North Bay Village, Florida, June 2, 2015 – Moda at North Bay Village is expected to meet its June 2015 completion thanks in part to construction documentation technology provided by Multivista. The project’s developer, ZOM Living, enlisted Multivista South Florida to provide a comprehensive documentation program that would facilitate the successful and timely completion of the 285 luxury apartment development. ZOM, one of Florida’s largest multi-family developers, routinely includes Multivista in its development projects.

“The main advantage for us using Multivista has really been about maintaining the highest level of quality control and verification,” said Brett Gelsomino, Development Project Manager at ZOM. “Construction at Moda has been going very well, but if ever we do run into anything, it’s useful having the pictures to see how things were assembled or what’s going on behind the walls without having major delays or expenses associated with tearing things apart.”

Multivista® construction documentation services offer several benefits to developers. The comprehensive photo documentation can be used as visual evidence in construction litigation cases, and it can significantly assist new contractors joining a team mid-project. The service also provides project stakeholders, such as engineers and inspectors, with remote access to extensive jobsite details, thereby reducing the number of unnecessary site visits.

“Multivista has definitely made my job easier, especially when it comes to photographic reporting”, said Gelsomino. “My favorite feature in the Multivista platform is being able to select a few pictures and generate a report complete with date and time stamps, location markers, and all associated information,” explained Gelsomino. “Either it can show the evolution of one detail over time, or it can show specifics on an area at a certain time, and then I can print it or email it to anyone involved in the project.”

In a concluding statement, Gelsomino explains why ZOM will continue investing in Multivista, “For ZOM, there is so much value in the Multivista services and platform that we will likely continue to use it for all of our ground-up developments. Simply put, I would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it. It’s a great tool and resource to document and archive all stages of construction progress, and the documentation remains on file long after project completion.”

The luxury apartments at Moda in North Bay Village are built in 1950’s art-deco style, with bold geometric motifs and with city and water views. Moda is scheduled to be completed by June 2015 and leasing opportunities are now available. For more information please contact the leasing office at (305) 397-8857 or visit viewmoda.com.
