Construction Visibility

Optimising Workflows

Walbridge used aerial data from Nearmap to accelerate multi-stage construction projects.

“Nearmap gives us high-resolution imagery 2-3 times a year, it decreases our costs, and reduces our effort to get [drone survey] approvals. It increases our efficiency, which is what we're about here at Walbridge.”

John JurewiczDirector of Innovation, Walbridge
Walbridge – a Detroit-based construction company – needed to enhance how they track and monitor design and build across a wide-reaching portfolio of properties. The latest aerial data was a must have for Walbridge as they worked to accelerate their approach to projects, including multi-stage construction projects for General Motors.

The Challenge at a Glance

Overcoming FAA Regulations

Walbridge identified a need to enhance how they gathered data as bespoke flyovers were not the most cost-efficient option, or always feasible to conduct – and accurate data was critical.

The Solution at a Glance

Proactive Monitoring of Sites

When introduced to Nearmap, the benefits of a proactive capture program were instantly clear. The team was able to access quarterly refreshes of sub 3” imagery, from East to West Coast.

Business Impact

Maximising Project Resources

Valuable resources which were previously dedicated to the planning of flyovers could now be leveraged in other areas of the business. With on-demand access to both historical and current imagery, key stakeholders can easily gain insight into the most up-to-date truth across the project lifecycle.
