CHALLENGE #1 Creating A Point Of Reference
With such an expansive job site being crisscrossed by hundreds of team members each day, comprehensive top-down visibility was a requirement from day one. Keeping track of what work had been completed, where equipment and materials were stored, and what areas were ready to be worked on next was key to working efficiently and ensuring on-time and on-budget delivery.
Initially, Webcor deployed their own UAV to handle aerial progress photography. However, they quickly found that this automated UAV solution lacked the flexibility and consistency desired, left important stakeholders in the dark because of segmented or corrupted data, and tied up valuable resources.
Multivista, was contracted to take that load off the project team. With a team of experienced UAV pilots on the ground and a full support team in the back office, Multivista captured the bi-weekly aerial documentation Webcor needed to help keep Merced 2020 on its critical path.
