Buchanan Building New York City Pre-Construction Video

Contractor – The Dermot Company

Manhattan, New York City
Current State of Building, Pre-Construction Video

December 2019

 

For this Pre-Construction Video we were hired by the contractor The Dermot Company. We have done projects within New York City, with a focus on Manhattan, and other states for the past five years. Other notable jobs that ALL PRO USA has completed in New York City include documentation of the Rubin Museum during modifications above the Barney’s Department Store. As well as post construction photography for Petrie Construction of the newly renovated AMC Movie Theater, Lincoln Square, Manhattan. Video of the rooftop, stucco walls facing a courtyard and stucco walls facing the street were required by the contractor to document any pre existing conditions with this building prior to the start of the project. This project required only videography and no construction photography or progress photography to be taken. 

This project was on in the borough of  Manhattan in New York City. The concern of the contractor was pre-existing conditions of the Buchanan Building. The focus of the video of the Penthouse & Rooftop was to document conditions of stucco walls, brickwork, concrete, chimneys, utility storage, railings, downspouts, gutters and other general conditions. This project was in a unique location being that it was a rooftop we could not use some of our tools like our truck mounted camera. The tight quarters of a lot of the sections also prevented to drone from being an effective option to document this project. 

 

 

NYC Construction Video

In the neighborhoods of New York City, ALL PRO USA is the contractor's choice for Construction and Pre Construction Video and Photography including Road Videos, Aerial Drone Coverage and Progress Video of Worksites.

This job was unique for ALL PRO USA but presented only a few challenges for the two person team completing the project. That challenge was the simple fact that it was December and it is in Manhattan, New York City. This meant they could be faced with a blistering cold work environment. At street level this would have been less of an issue for them. What made this a factor was the wind due to the fact that the documentation was taking places on the roof of a 24 story building. The second of these challenges is the tight work environment made it difficult to use some of our tools which lead to mostly handheld videography of the project. This can be tough to stabilize the shots which is our goal. A smooth and well documented video allows the contractors to easily review and see the pre-existing conditions that exist.

Rooftop Utility Room and Stucco Walls

Prior to the start of construction ALL PRO USA was contracted to do a pre-construction video of the pre-existing conditions of the Buchanan building. This included the Rooftop Utility Room and the Stucco Walls. These videos are a few highlights of how this was captured by the team.

Courtyard View and Utility Building #2

Also for the Buchanan Building, ALL PRO USA was required to document the Courtyard View as well as the Utility Building #2. This was done mostly via handheld videography to capture what these areas looked like prior to the start of construction.

Rooftop Stucco Walls and Chimneys

For the Rooftop Stucco Walls and the Chimneys, we went through and documented the conditions of these elements of the building prior to the start of the construction project. These videos are a few examples of how ALL PRO USA captured these elements for the contractor.
