For this Pre Construction Video we were hired by the contractor Distel Construction. This particular project did not require progress photography or construction photography. We have done projects in Ohio and other states for the past five years with several contractors including PAR Electric, Wilson Electric, New River Electric and Meade Electric. This project required ALL PRO USA to document a Fueling Station parking lot and a parking lot for a Ponderosa Steakhouse. ALL PRO USA was also required to document streets, sidewalks and intersections in the town of Hillsboro, Ohio which is within Highland County about an hour drive from the City of Cincinnati.
The Project that Distel will be working on is the replacement of dated water lines that currently service the town. With this being a residential area with some traffic traveling through it safety was a top priority for the team. Each of us had high vis vests and hats on, this project did not require hardhats but they were packed in the truck should they become a necessity. While using the drone on this project the three person team was crucial for safety. While our FAA certified drone pilot got the drone ready the other two members of the team were able to keep clear watch for overhead obstacles and traffic in the parking lots.
The focus of the video was to document the road surface, sidewalks, curbs, culverts, retaining walls, utilities and landscaping along the proposed construction path for the replacement of the pre-existing water lines. Various equipment was used to document the area including video cameras, both handheld and truck mounted, as well as drone videography. ALL PRO USA documented each section of the project in a logical manner using a three man team. By documenting the project in this way the contractor has a cohesive package that can be watched from start to finish to see all of the areas within the limits of disturbance or jump to a specific section to allow for quick reference to a specific street or parking lot.
